In the 1970s and 80s, Tammy Faye and her husband Jim Bakker (Andrew Garfield) founded the most important American religious broadcasting network, created a major theme park and rose to fame thanks to 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.
