Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Still from Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Marielle Heller, 2018

Featuring Oscar-nominated performances from both Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant, Can You Ever Forgive Me? is the true story of best-selling celebrity biographer (and friend to cats) Lee Israel who made her living in the 1970’s and 80’s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estee Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen.

When Lee is no longer able to get published because she has fallen out of step with current tastes, she turns her art form to deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack.

“This match of freakish opposites who are also kindred spirits is mesmerising from the moment they meet” ★★★★★ – The Telegraph
