Film Independent Members, you and a guest are invited to join us for a theatrical screening of the first episode of George & Tammy, followed by an in-person conversation with stars Jessica Chastain and Michael Shannon, and music producer Rachael Moore, moderated by Clayton Davis (Senior Awards Editor, Variety).
The evening will include a free popcorn and beverage for each attendee.
George & Tammy chronicles the country music power couple Tammy Wynette and George Jones, whose complicated-but-enduring relationship inspired some of the most iconic music of all time. Remembered as the “First Lady of Country Music,” Wynette’s most successful song “Stand by Your Man” remains one of the most iconic and best-selling country singles by a female artist. Known for his once-in-a-lifetime voice, George Jones’ song “He Stopped Loving Her Today,” is still widely called the greatest country song of all time. With over 30 number-one country songs between them, including duets “We’re Gonna Hold On,” “Golden Ring” and “Near You,” George and Tammy’s legacy, both musically and romantically, remains one of the greatest love stories ever told.
Jessica Chastain won the 2023 Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Female Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series for her performance in Tammy.
Episode 101 – “The Race Is On”
Up and coming singer Tammy Wynette gets a big break when she’s asked to open for her idol, country legend George Jones. The two have an immediate romantic connection and undeniable musical chemistry, but their would-be pairing faces a major obstacle: Tammy’s husband Don Chapel. Series premiere.
