Irish Opinion Eleanor McEvoy July 29, 2008 Irish singer-songwriter Eleanor McEvoy sits down to talk movies. Ever since ‘A Woman’s Heart’, Eleanor MvEvoy has been a household name across Ireland. Her distinctive style paved the way for a generation of female artists and this month, she returns with her latest album ‘Love Must be Tough’. We got a chance to chat movies with the Irish singer/songwriter. Q: How often to you get to sit down and watch a movie?I try and catch up with movies by seeing the best when they come out on DVD. Though I always think, it’s an insult to the director and the composer. A bit like MP3 is to well recorded music. Q: Tell us about the last movie you saw? (either in cinema, video, DVD or TV)“The Mighty Wind”, a mockumentary about 60’s Folk from the Spinal Tap team. Q: What is your favourite Irish movie and why?“Some Mother’s Son” – a courageous depiction of a terrifying issue, (the hunger strikes). Bill Whelan did an amazing score and I was very privileged to sing on one piece. Q: What is your favourite movie of all time?Toy Story 2. (Probably because it’s been on hundreds on times in my household) Q: What movie could you never sit through again?Mission Impossible -I was so bored I turned it off half way through (AND I WAS ON A TRANSATLANTIC FLIGHT AT THE TIMEWITHOUT A BOOK) Q: Describe your ideal movie cast… (actor, actress & director)John Cusack, Helen Mirren and Franco Zeffirelli Q: Have you ever cried during a movie? Which one?Mission Impossible (see second last question above) Actually I’ve cried often, most recently at that amazing film “The Constant Gardiner” Q: Favourite movie snack?I guess it has to be popcorn. Q: Favourite TV programme?Six Feet Under Q: Who would play you in the movie adaptation of your life?Difficult that one- because they’d have to look in their early 20s for the whole film 😉 But Meryl Streep could do the last few scenes. ‘Love Must be Tough’ is out now.
