A charming drama and fresh look into the lives and actions of the famous Jim and Tammy Bakker scandal. The acting in this movie is incredible with both Andrew Garfield and Jessica Chastain’s performances as the highlight of this film. Both actors completely lose themselves to their roles and characters. Garfield has recently been demonstrating his versatility and may just be one of the most versatile male actors on the rise in Hollywood. The cinematography and directing were captivating in moments, but underwhelming in others. The overall story of the film is well crafted and paced. My only critique I have heard lies in the film’s sympathies with the protagonists. Personally, I appreciate the neutral stance the film takes, and its trust in the audience to make their own moral and ethical judgements.
