Description

THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE is an intimate look at the extraordinary rise, fall and redemption of televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker (Jessica Chastain). In the 1970s and ’80s, Tammy Faye and her husband, Jim Bakker (Andrew Garfield), rose from humble beginnings to create the world’s largest religious broadcasting network and theme park. At first, they were revered for their messages of love, acceptance and prosperity. All the while, Tammy Faye was legendary for her indelible eyelashes, idiosyncratic singing, and 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 and written by Abe Sylvia, THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE also features Cherry Jones and Vincent D’Onofrio.

    Jessica did an awesome job of portraying Tammy it’s unbelievable how great she was. I vaguely remember all the PTL stuff as I’m not a charismatic Christian. I’m just a Christian who’s faith is solely in God, not people, places or persons. I do think this movie deserves an award for the outstanding work. I was enthralled watching it from start to finish. Just good film making 👍

    In ‘87, I used to get off from work in the morning as a nurse, go home, fix me a bowl of oatmeal & turn on my little B&W t.v. & watch Tammy Faye Baker come floating down the isles, singing her little ol’ heart out. Her eyes camouflaged by caked on layers of mascara, eyeshadow & eyeliner. She’s start crying, the mascara’d start running & I’d laugh & laugh & laugh! PTL, ie., Praise the Lord! Or was it, Pick-up the Loot? Errr…or perhaps it stood for Pay The Lady (with the whole sex scandal & all)? She had to be on something — was it Valium? How those two could have came out of the Great White North of International Falls, Minnesota always boggled my mind. Sure, Jim was a crook. But, the people gave willingly. I hope you’re singing the praises of the Lord up in heaven, Miss Tammy.

    Those crooked CLOWNS were a joke when they were alive and you had to go and make a movie about that garbage? Hollywood is getting royally desperate if THIS is all you people can come up with for a movie... Sheez... even the acting was off the charts raunchy...

    Check out her son Jay Bakker “ One punk under God” it’s a great documentary following him to the places he preaches in, bars etc and during this time his mother is battling cancer. He did 1 season I believe then just stopped, but still preaches. I would’ve watched every season if he would’ve done more.
  • What a delightful surprise!

    This was one of my favorite movies of the year. Funny, dear, politically relevant with an Oscar worthy performance by Chastain. Brilliantly directed with signature style by Michael Showalter. Visually enticing.
  • Outstanding & Transformative Performances

    Outstanding and transformative performances by Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield are the highlights of “The Eyes of Tammy Faye”. There are some genuinely touching moments especially the depiction of Tammy Faye’s interview with Steve Pieters and the final musical number. Cherry Jones also delivers as Tammy’s mother, Rachel.
