Movie Info

EVELYN is a deeply personal film from Academy Award (R) winning filmmakers of THE WHITE HELMETS and VIRUNGA. It is the story of how a family survives the unthinkable. Fourteen years after the suicide of their son and brother, Evelyn, the family decide to walk the length of the UK and try to talk about him - something they had failed to do in over a decade. This poetic feature documentary explores the fabric of grief and the longevity of love. Part quest film, part road-trip, part memoir, EVELYN is an exposition of the taboos of mental health and male emotion, and a tribute to our times.

  • For all of its bucolic pleasures, Evelyn is like looking through the eye of a merciless storm, with Orlando's focus pointed outwards toward the untold millions of people who are struggling to endure this same predicament.

  • [A] raw, unfiltered view of the fragility of family dynamics is exposed movingly, and sometimes comically, throughout.

  • [Orlando von Einsiedel] has made a career out of exploring the raw, unfiltered brutality of war... But it is this new film, Evelyn, in which he finally addresses the most important, most difficult and definitive event in his life.

  • A tough film to watch at times, but if it helps you think about someone in your life who either isn't here anymore because of suicide or might harm his or herself, it becomes a completely worthwhile watch.

  • It is powerful and raw, capable of producing deep, painful reactions. But if you are in a place to watch Evelyn, you will find the beauty amid the pain.

  • Evelyn ... is an often powerful film, with von Eisensiedel's camera, planted firmly in the middle of this fragile and potentially damaging family reunion in the wild, capturing many raw and highly emotional moments of both pain and catharsis.
