The Eyes of Tammy Faye (2021). Movie Reviews

Published on

The Eyes of Tammy Faye is a 2021 movie directed by Michael Showalter. Starring Jessica Chastain and Andrew Garfield.

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
