ODEON says...
Nominated for 3 BAFTA Film Awards including Leading Actress & Supporting Actor.

Melissa McCarthy stars in the adaptation of the memoir 'Can You Ever Forgive Me?', the true story of best-selling celebrity biographer (and friend to cats) Lee Israel who made her living in the 1970s and 80s 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.

Witty Drama

Reviewer: Saint2Date: 2019-03-04

You are encouraged to loath the characters, forced by disposition, and their desperate situations. The story is remarkable, sharp biting wit. You'll love them in the end. Defn 'silver screen' quality,

Enjoyable movie
