Our first film of the new season will be Can You Ever Forgive Me?...
A biographical film based on the confessional memoir by Lee Israel, a failing writer who turned her art form to deception. Starring Melissa McCarthy and Richard E Grant.
Lee Israel is a frustrated, hard-drinking author who can barely afford to pay her rent or bills in 1990s New York. Desperate for money, Israel soon hatches a scheme to forge letters by famous writers and sell them to bookstores and collectors. When the dealers start to catch on, Lee recruits a dubious friend to help her continue her self-destructive cycle of trickery and deceit.
“Everything - performance, script, direction, cinematography - works in perfect concert.” Little White Lies
“This film takes an altogether different view of the imitation game. By embracing frauds and failures, it achieves greatness on the sly.” London Evening Standard
