Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield star in this upcoming movie, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, about the life of televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker. Check out the trailer.
The Eyes of Tammy Faye 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.
The film also stars Cherry Jones, Fredric Lehne, Louis Cancelmi, Sam Jaeger, Gabriel Olds, Mark Wystrach, and Vincent D'Onofrio.
The Eyes of Tammy Faye, directed by Michael Showalter and written by Abe Sylvia, arrives in theaters on September 17, 2021.
