Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Melissa McCarthy is brilliantly unsympathetic in this revelatory dramatic role as literary fraud Lee Israel. With her writing career permanently stalled, incapable of getting over her ex-girlfriend and job prospects nil, she turns her craft to penning elaborate fake letters from the likes of Noël Coward.

Lee is acerbic but hilarious company, making an art of imitation and spurred on by her drinking companion Lee (Richard E. Grant in a superb return to the big screen).

Funny yet quietly poignant, Marielle Heller’s film (Diary of a Teenage Girl) dextrously handles Nicole Holofcener’s (Enough Said, Please Give) script.
