The Eyes of Tammy Faye
THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE, starring Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield, is an intimate look at the extraordinary rise, fall and redemption of televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker.
In the 1970s and 80s, Tammy Faye and her husband, Jim Bakker, rose from humble beginnings to create the world’s largest religious broadcasting network and theme park, and were revered for their message of love, acceptance and prosperity. Tammy Faye was legendary for her indelible eyelashes, her idiosyncratic singing, and her eagerness to embrace people from all walks of life.
However, it wasn’t long before financial improprieties, scheming rivals, and scandal toppled their carefully constructed empire.
Directed by Michael Showalter (THE BIG SICK and HELLO, MY NAME IS DORIS).
"Entertaining and surprisingly funny given the subject matter, the movie’s also an exquisitely acted affair paced by Chastain (who also produces), turning in a career-best effort as the complex Tammy Faye."–Brian Truitt, USA Today
