In 1970, Tammy Faye and her husband Jim Bakker became one of the most influential couples on television. Their evangelical broadcast was followed my millions in North America. Tammy Faye and her iconic batting eyelashes were unforgettable as they went from humble beginnings to growing a full-fledged empire including a theme park. However, the Christian faith built empire was rocked by scandal and collapsed.

THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE is an upcoming American biographical drama based a 2000 documentary by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato. It tells the fascinating story of Tammy Faye’s rise, fall, and rise again from the days of meeting Jim to the devastating crumble.

The film directed by Michael Showalter stars Jessica Chastain as Tammy Faye –also stars Andrew Garfield, Cherry Jones, Fredric Lehne, Louis Cancelmi, Sam Jaeger, Gabriel Olds, Mark Wystrach, and Vincent D’Onofrio.

We’ve also pegged this as one of our “must sees” at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival where it is screening as a Special Presentation. It will also be in theatres beginning September 17.

We are giving away 5 double passes to an advance screening here in Toronto on Wednesday, September 15, 2021.

OFFICIAL FILM SYNOPSIS:

THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE is an intimate look at 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, and were revered for their message of love, acceptance and prosperity. Tammy Faye was legendary for 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.
