Can You Ever Forgive Me? (15)
A celebrity biographer sets up a lucrative scam.
Melissa McCarthy stars as Lee Israel, the best selling celebrity biographer (and cat lover) who made her living in the 1970s and 80s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estée Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. When Lee finds herself out of step with the marketplace and unable to get published, she begins a lucrative scam with her loyal friend Jack (Richard E. Grant) - forging hundreds of letters purportedly written by luminaries, then selling her "memorabilia" to dealers across the country.
