Nathan Hinds: Evita

Madonna starred in the title role of the 1996 film adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Tony Award-winning rock opera about the life and political rise of Argentinian leader Eva Peron. The film also introduced a new song, "You Must Love Me," which won the Academy Award for Best Song. The ballad was incorporated into the recent London and Broadway revivals of the musical.
