Parents need to know that The Eyes of Tammy Faye is a sympathetic biopic about Tammy Faye Bakker (Jessica Chastain), the infamous PTL televangelist who built and lost a Christian empire in the 1970s and '80s. Bible scripture flows faster than holy water here, and Tammy Faye frequently and enthusiastically expresses her deep love of God. But this isn't an evangelical vehicle: It's a redemption tale, and, after watching, it's hard not to agree that she deserves forgiveness. She is depicted as unique (at least, in her world) for taking a nonjudgmental approach to Christianity, which made her an unexpected gay rights advocate during the AIDS crisis. Director Michael Showalter allows her best actions to speak louder than her worst -- i.e., helping bilk followers out of millions of dollars that went to extravagant projects and her personal life of luxury. Her husband Jim (Andrew Garfield) is subjected to tougher scrutiny but is still portrayed with a great degree of sympathy, including the fact that his sex scandal is played off with a lightness (it's not made clear that it was a rape allegation in real life). While none of that happens on camera, the Bakkers' sex life does, including scenes with aggressive fondling. A supporting character's implied sexual orientation is used against him. Tammy's addiction to prescription drugs is covered, although younger viewers might not make the connection that her pill popping had a substantial negative consequence.
