Film PosterCan You Ever Forgive Me?

Melissa McCarthy is magnificent as an odious down-on her-luck biographer turned forger who befriends Richard E Grant as her lounge-lizard drinking buddy in this tale from 1990’s New York.

This absorbing black comedy centres on the down on her luck biographer, Lee Israel, who befriends the heavy drinking Jack. The pair’s chemistry is sublime and the actors inject their customary humour and pathos into the roles.
