Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Director: Marielle Heller
Starring: Dolly Wells, Melissa McCarthy, Richard Grant
Duration: 106 min


At the age of 51, Lee Israel (McCarthy) has spent years behind the typewriter, writing best-selling celebrity biographies, profiling the glossiest names in showbiz. When her career goes into a sudden slump and she's left with nothing but her beloved cat, some moth-eaten cardigans and a point-blank eviction warning, she takes a questionable route to keep the wolf from the door. Expertly faking letters from the stars, she sells them out of her New York flat for hundreds of dollars. But it’s not long before the FBI smell a rat. Lee enlists the help of loyal friend Jack Hock (Grant) to keep tricks afloat. Adapted from Lee Israel’s memoir of the same name, Can You Ever Forgive Me? recounts a true story of one woman who played with fire, got burnt but still enjoyed the ride.
