THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE

Rating: M
Cast: Jessica Chastain, Vincent D’Onofrio, Andrew Garfield

In the 1970s, Tammy Faye Bakker and her husband, Jim, rise from humble beginnings to create the world’s largest religious broadcasting network and theme park. Tammy Faye becomes legendary for her indelible eyelashes, her idiosyncratic singing, and her eagerness to embrace people from all walks of life. However, financial improprieties, scheming rivals and a scandal soon threaten to topple their carefully constructed empire.

Searchlight Pictures’ THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE is the next heartwarming Drama-Comedy from Director Michael Showalter (THE BIG SICK, THE LOVEBIRDS) and features a career best performance from Jessica Chastain (MOLLY’S GAME, ZERO DARK THIRTY) as the titular character, and who has already picked up awards for her performance and is certainly one of the frontrunners for this year’s Best Actress Academy Award. She is supported by an incredible cast including Andrew Garfield (HACKSAW RIDGE), Vincent D’Onofrio (FULL METAL JACKET), Cherry Jones (THE VILLAGE), Sam Jaeger (AMERICAN SNIPER) and Fredric Lehne (ZERO DARK THIRTY).

“Firing up the Oscar race for Best Actress, a virtuoso Jessica Chastain raises up this biopic about televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker by redeeming her reputation as a cultural joke in clown makeup and finding the soul beneath the sparkle.” – ABC News

“Jessica Chastain delivers an Oscar-worthy performance in the title role, and Andrew Garfield is nothing less than sensational as her soft-spoken, indifferent, and cloyingly ambitious preacher husband Jim.” – Observer

“”The Eyes of Tammy Faye” gives viewers an absorbing, amusing and provocative chance to rethink yet another train wreck who turned out to be, of all things, human.” – Washington Post
