The Eyes of Tammy Faye

Televangelists. People “chosen to do Gods work” by asking for donations while preaching on tv. Sound wacky? Well not for Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker. The two were some of the countries most popular televangelists in the 80s until scandal broke and disrupted their perfect image. Filmed from Tammy’s perspective you see the fame, the singing, and the desperation people will go to to love. Andrew Garfield (who’s having an epic year) and Jessica Chastain portray the two in a frighteningly accurate way. Chastain has been wanting to play Bakker for over a decade and reports say she has even suffered skin damage from the amount of time she spent in prosthetics. This movie will make you cringe but also make you have sympathy for a woman wearing way too much makeup.
