The Eyes of Tammy Faye12A

Directed by Michael Showalter | USA | 2021 | 2h 6m | Starring Jessica Chastain, Andrew Garfield, Cherry Jones, Vincent D’Onofrio

An intimate look at the rise and fall of American televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker and her fraudster husband Jim Bakker, who rose from humble beginnings to create the world’s largest religious broadcasting network. Oscar-nominee Jessica Chastain gives a dazzling performance in this sympathetic biopic of a misunderstood figure who became an unlikely LGBTQ icon.


‘A riveting, unleashed and award-worthy performance from Jessica Chastain, playing a central character full of tensions and contradictions, is reason enough to see this film.’
Kevin Maher, The Times

‘Jessica Chastain gives a hilarious turn as Tammy Faye: like Tammy Wynette with a bit of Nancy Reagan and Eva Perón.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
