Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Melissa McCarthy stars in CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?, the true story of best-selling celebrity biographer (and friend to cats) Lee Israel, who turned to forgery when her style of writing fell out of fashion.
It’s a hard, lonely life, being a writer. But what if you could find a way to make money by passing off your own writing as the work of far more famous authors? Lee Israel made a name for herself writing biographies on the likes of Katharine Hepburn and Estee Lauder, but changes in reading tastes have lately found her books languishing in bargain bins. Desperation causes her to start writing letters, purportedly by famous people, and selling them for quick cash as celebrity ephemera. Abetted by her loyal friend Jack (Richard E. Grant), Lee soon finds herself raking in money – and quickly sinking into a scheme that is far more than she can handle.
Lead by impressive talent behind the scenes with director Marielle Heller (The Diary of a Teenage Girl) and writer Nicole Holofcener (Enough Said), CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME? is a typewriter thriller that should see McCarthy garner high acclaim come awards season.
