The movie was released in theaters and on Netflix in November 2021. Currently, Garfield can be seen alongside Jessica Chastain in The Eyes of Tammy Faye, based on the documentary of the same name. The film is directed by Michael Showalter and was released by Searchlight in September 2021 in the U.S.
