THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE is an intimate look behind the extraordinary rise, fall and redemption of televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker. In the 1970s and ‘80s, Tammy Faye and her husband, Jim Bakker, rose from humble beginnings to create the world’s largest religious broadcasting network and theme park. Renowned for her message of love, acceptance and prosperity, Tammy Faye became inseparable from her indelible eyelashes, her idiosyncratic singing, and her eagerness to embrace people from all walks of life. However, it wasn’t long before financial improprieties, scheming rivals, and scandal toppled their carefully constructed empire.
The Eyes Of Tammy Faye stars Jessica Chastain (ZERO DARK THIRTY, TREE OF LIFE), Andrew Garfield (HACKSAW RIDGE, SILENCE), Cherry Jones (THE HANDMAIDS TALE, SUCCSESSION), Gabriel Olds (Surrogates) Fredric Lehne (The Greatest Showman), Mark Wystrach (Johnny Christ), Sam Jaeger (Parenthood, Shazam!), Chandler Head (The Glass Castle) and Vincent D’Onofrio (The Cell, Men In Black). A Searchlight Pictures production, the film is directed by Michael Showalter (The Big Sick; Hello, My Name Is Doris), written by Abe Sylvia (Dead To Me, Dirty Girl). Chastain produced, alongside Kelly Carmichael (Nine, My Week With Marilyn) through their Freckle Films banner with Gigi Pritzker (Motherless Brooklyn, Rabbit Hole) and Rachel Shane (Motherless Brooklyn, Hell Or High Water) of Madison Wells. Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, and Meredith Milton are executive producers as well as Jordana Mollick of Semi-Formal Productions, and Adrian Alperovich from Madison Wells.
