Tammy Faye Bakker and her husband, Jim, build the world’s greatest religious television network and theme park from humble beginnings in the 1970s. Tammy Faye’s distinctive eyelashes, quirky singing, and enthusiasm to accept people from all walks of life make her legendary. However, financial misdeeds, ambitious competitors, and a scandal eventually threaten to dismantle their carefully built empire.
The first full trailer for Jessica Chastain’s portrayal of televangelist and camp icon Tammy Faye Bakker in The Eyes of Tammy Faye was out today, and boy, is she stunning there is a lot to look for. Michael Showalter directs what appears to be an amusing and compassionate portrayal of Tammy Faye and her fraudster husband, Jim Bakker, based on the 2000 documentary of the same name (narrated by RuPaul!).
The teaser gives viewers a glimpse into Jim and Tammy’s brightly colored lifestyle, but things start to fall apart when financial misdeeds, a sex scandal, and rivals destroy their marriage — and their empire. Chastain and Garfield become practically unrecognizable as the Bakkers get older in the teaser, showcasing the hair and makeup department’s abilities.
