Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy) made her living in the 1970s and 80s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Estée Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. Out of step with current tastes and no longer able to get published, Lee turns her art form to deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack (Richard E. Grant). An adaptation of the memoir Can You Ever Forgive Me? relays the true story of the best-selling celebrity biographer (and friend to cats).
