In the 1970s, Tammy Faye Bakker and her husband, Jim, rise from humble beginnings to create the world’s largest religious broadcasting network and theme park.

Heather’s Review:

I had heard about Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker growing up, but I don’t think I ever really paid attention to the scandal, nor did I know their story. The Eyes of Tammy Faye did a great job of capturing the important parts of their lives and how they led to what eventually brought them down. Although I would not have initially considered these actors for these parts, they did an incredible job in becoming their characters.

I give The Eyes of Tammy Faye on HBO Max 4 out of 5 stars.
