Biopic about the televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker.

Plot

Jessica Chastain transforms into flamboyant televangelist and singer Tammy Faye Bakker, the woman who would, alongside husband Jim Bakker (Andrew Garfield), build a multimillion dollar ministry empire. The Bakkers’ spectacular fall from grace thrust Tammy Faye into the mainstream spotlight. Her fashion and makeup choices were regular subjects of derision in late-night talk shows and sketch comedies, which cemented her place in popular culture. (Filmaffinity)

Movie Reviews

“A movie that feels both sweet and incomplete: a story as tenderhearted and inscrutable, for better or worse, as its muse.” Leah Greenblatt: Entertainment Weekly

“[The] image rehabilitation for Tammy Faye Bakker only gets so far dramatically, and really would have been better served in a richer, more ambitious film (…) Rating :?? (out of 4)” Brian Tallerico: rogerebert.com 

“Jessica Chastain Applies Heart and Soul to Televangelist Biopic (…) Sympathetic (and not unfunny) look at Bakker scandals is also a rollicking tale of religious hypocrisy” Robert Abele: The Wrap
