The Synopsis

The Eyes of Tammy Faye

A close-up examination of the amazing ascent, fall, and salvation of televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker (Jessica Chastain). The largest Christian television network and theme park in the world were founded by Tammy Faye and her husband Jim Bakker (Andrew Garfield) in the 1970s and 1980s. They were admired for spreading a message of love, acceptance, and prosperity. Tammy Faye was renowned for her impossibly long eyelashes, eccentric singing style, and enthusiasm to embrace people from all backgrounds. However, their meticulously crafted empire was quickly shattered by financial misdeeds, cunning competitors, and scandal.

The Reviews

What they say

"... a dazzling showcase.."

"... The stars outshine the movie in "The Eyes of Tammy Faye," a dazzling showcase for Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield as Tammy Faye and Jim Bakker in ... how the televangelists amassed great wealth..."

Brian Lowry

"... nothing less than sensational ..."

"Jessica Chastain delivers an Oscar-worthy performance in the title role, and Andrew Garfield is nothing less than sensational as her soft-spoken, indifferent, and cloyingly ambitious preacher husband Jim."

Rex Reed

"...intriguing, sly and effective ..."

"...Andrew Garfield’s portrayal of the deeply complicated Jim sneaks up on you; as Jim ages, Garfield’s interpretation grows more intriguing, sly and effective...it’s an eye-opener..."
