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.

    Looks terrible. Neither Chastain nor Garfield look like the actual people they're portraying, the prosthetics are way too fake looking. And also, there is a great documentary of the same name told by Tammy Baker herself, guaranteed that this story won't be nearly as fascinating as that one was.

    Tbh, that’s the best performance yet I’ve seen from both Chastain & Garfield- just from the trailer. Jim Bakker & Tammy Faye were nuts! This is gonna be weird/good.

    I know this will probably be well-received, but this looks like the worst bit of farce I've seen in a long time. Jessica does not look, sound, sing, or behave anything like Tammy Faye. It's frustrating because this could have been a really interesting movie, but once again, Hollywood went with stunt-casting and inaccuracy.

    Jim Baker is back on a religious cable program but does not have as many followers as before. Jimmy Swaggart is also back on Christian Cable. It seems like he is his same ole critical self as if he never had a major sex scandal much like Baker. I don't see the resemblance where this actress looks like Tammy Faye like some are saying. The actor that portrays Jim Baker is more similar in appearance to the real one. Both Tammy and her competitor Jan Crouch who was Co-founder of TBN were into clownish heavy make up, and eye shadow when the Bible calls for women to be moderate in appearance.

    The advent of Christian Broadcasting = Televangelism seemed like a Tale of Two Cities. On the negative side, TV Evangelism opened the door to the Prosperity Gospel with greed and also made many unlearned, gullible Christians who must have never read their entire Bible word for word buy into the scam message that God will bless and prosper them if they sent in cash money to a Televangelist and kept their Network going.
    Jesus said "Paid in full" as He was dying in His sacrificial atoning payment for our sins which applies to anyone who trust Him as their Lord and Savior will be Saved & blessed free of charge. Jesus never at any time said Pay in Full like some of those TV preachers and their sow a seed (Cash) to reap a harvest in blessings would have you believe.

    On the positive side of Christian television, it has offered hope and inspiration with great choirs and encouragement. All one has to do is eat the fish but spit out the bones when it comes to TBN. Not sure why they have turned so Political. Jesus never got into praising, and running after the Political leaders of His day. Jesus = God said If He is Lifted Up He Will Draw People to God. Shamefully, many Evangelicals appear to be looking for a Political savior = Trump, as if they think Jesus is not enough to transform sinners into Saints and change a person's heart?

    Really had very extremely little knowledge of these people but it's sad to see, as a christian, so much garbage that has been done in the name of Christ. Most people in America even today don't even know what true Christianity is because partly due to the likes of people like this that still exist today. This looks like an interesting movie don't get me wrong but unfortunately it's going to present to people what they think Christianity is. When it's nothing like.

    This trailer appears to deliver 2-dimensional writing and directing. I worked for the Bakkers at PTL. I'm neither fan nor defender, but the story of these charismatic and complex characters is yet to be told. This motion picture effort appears to miss the mark as every other effort has, with mere thumbnail assumptions gathered from quite a distance. The screenwriter and director clearly did not do diligent research. If they feel they did, it is evident that they dumbed down their character study and ignored any information that gave these characters an inkling of humanity, possibly to target a specific demographic for personal profit. This is most unfortunate because this story could have carried the narrative that even evangelical Christianity is a seductive and entrancing portal to greed, power and mind control over masses of humans. This story could have served to free a lot of people from unhealthy religious indoctrination and to educate the public on groupthink. Instead, it appears to be nothing more than anemic and popular mudslinging in an effort for accolades and monetary gain. It is only fair to face the hard truth and startling facts of the PTL story, but these portrayals are nowhere near the truth and there are surviving family members, children and grandchildren of these two leading characters who are left to deal with the false portrayals of their family members. Tammy is dead and Jim is invincible in his cocoon of indoctrinated followers he lords over. Only their descendants will pay the price for yet another inaccurate portrayal of these two people and the aftermath of their actions. But who cares in this unscrupulous era? No one with integrity in reporting for sure, and general audiences love to see the dehumanization of any modern gurus. It is a sad and unfortunate state of affairs we all live in. Each of us can only hope we do not fall prey to the same. The fact that the general population believes mythical storytelling such as this motion picture is truly disheartening although it does explain the nonsensical belief system of so many humans. Facts and truth do not matter while click bait and monetary gain at anyone else's cost, do.

    Jessica Chastain looks nothing like Tammy Faye. Bernadette Peters portrayed her better in the early 90’s TV movie called A Fall From Grace. Tammy Faye was a beautiful lady inside and out. She was a sweet and caring person. The media always portrayed her so falsely.

      She was a beautiful lady. I’ve never understood why so much attention was placed on her makeup. Women of Hollywood then and now wore lots of makeup. I guess becauseTF was a Born again Christian people always had something negative to say to tear her down. I’m glad that Jesus Christ is our judge and not people. The Bible says Judge not, that ye be not judged. I’m glad we all can call upon Gods grace and mercy for none of us is perfect or without sin.
