This will either be a critical and box office bomb or a box office hit and CLASSIC.

R1 Actually, it could be a critical bomb [italic]and[/italic] classic.
Chastain is fantastic in the trailer. I’m predicting an Oscar win.

R3- True, very true.
Listen- Initially the trailer seemed like a straight up comedy- but the 2nd half shows an amazing range for Jessica-
So yes, I think she may have a lock on this.

R4 I agree, I was surprised at how good she captures Tammy Faye, especially, as you pointed out, in the second half of the trailer.
It seems as if, through her performance, she is charting the development of Tammy Faye’s public persona. Her voice grows increasingly high as she ages.
I am so excited for this pic.
After reading this in the People exclusive on the other thread, I think, with the help of this movie, Tammy Faye may become a DL icon:
[quote] Chastain says she was most surprised watching her interview with Christian gay minister and AIDS patient Steve Pieters, which fueled Tammy's later involvement and support of the LGBTQ movement. "That's really why I wanted to make the movie," Chastain allows. "Because in a time when people were even afraid to say AIDS, we had this female televangelist. And she was a minister too in her own right. She wasn't just the preacher's wife, the singer. The interview is phenomenal. It's so beautiful and loving. And it's such a huge turning point in terms of what people could associate God's grace with, because I feel like she was filled with grace."
Here is the interview referenced.

I'm glad her AIDS interview will be featured. And, that Jimmy Falwell will apparently be the villain in the film.

R14 I was more surprised by Garfield. I've only ever seen clips of some of his films, and he was always unremarkable to me. He seems to capture the essence of Bakker. And I know Tammy was a native of Minnesota, but I think Chastain carries that "Oh gosh, don't ya know!" manner of speaking too far into the story. Time will tell.

This movie is definitely Oscar hunting. And it will most likely win. It’s the equivalent of “I, Tonya,” the Tonya Harding movie that I loved so much several years back.

How can this film have the same title as the Documentary? Copyright?

R27 The same was done with Grey Gardens. If the powers that be, i.e., the documentarians, are ok with it, I think it’s permissible.

I saw Tammy when she came to the Castro to promote the documentary about her. She was roundly applauded and celebrated for coming to the gay mecca, telling some jokes, getting the boys riled up, and talking about people she knew she had lost to AIDS, and that she knew the crowd must have known. Thunderous applause and tears.
Then someone asked her if she supported gay marriage, and she gave a very diplomatic 'no' to the person who asked, and there were some boo and hiss from the crowd, followed by other queens being outraged by anyone doing that to Tammy. I found it hilarious.
I was ok with her lack of support there. We didn't need her for that, and she was at least being honest.
RIP sweet lady.

Too bad Jan Hooks didn't live long enough to play her again. (Although I guess she'd be too old now.)

Tammy Faye was an inspiration. I don't believe the same way she did, but I admired her devoutness without being too judgmental. She seemed like a really good (albeit naive) person with good intentions and a lot of love in her heart.
Jim, on the other hand, was and is an opportunist cunt.

I remember when she was being hyped to death circa 2011-2013. She then did a couple of independent films that were complete duds so she started doing things for the money i.e X-Men, IT. Now clearly she wants to restart her quest for an Oscar.
I didn’t have a problem with her when she first came onto the scene but then she got woke. Furthermore, she constantly goes on about how women in the industry are treated like shit but had no problem working with Matthew Newton. Newton is a director who has a history of alleged assault and domestic violence in Australia.

I can't believe I said Jimmy Falwell instead of Jerry Falwell, at R9, but I'm still glad he is being made the villain. I didn't know he was involved with them in anyway prior to his screwing them out of Heritage USA.
I am upset, however, that the legendary gospel singer Vestal Goodman doesn't appear to be one of the characters. Vestal and her husband Howard were close friends and costars of the Bakkers at PTL and lived in the same neighborhood in Tega Cay, SC. When all the shit was going down and the press was harassing Tammy Faye, she would push the paparazzi out the way and even would place Tammy in the foot of her car covered by sheets or clothing just to get her away to have some peace. Vestal would've been a good co-starring dramatic role for Melissa McCarthy.

I met Tammy Faye in 2002, she was shopping at an upscale resale shop in the Biltmore area of Phoenix (My Sister's Closet). I told her I had a quote of hers that I had cut out of the paper and taped to my computer at work and that I'd been a fan for a long time. She hugged me three times. She was a tiny woman, even in heels, and had full Tammy Faye makeup on. Sweetest woman ever. There was something slightly "off" about her, eccentric, but so full of love and life.

Tammy Faye always gave off the vibes that her Christianity, was a lot like Dolly Parton's. Not about condemnation but about love. I think the Evangelical world would've been a lot better with more Tammy Fayes and a lot less Jerry Falwells.
