Can You Ever Forgive Me? (15)
Author Lee Israel falls out of step with current tastes and desperate for money she 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.
Richard E Grant should have bagged the supporting actor Oscar as the best friend who colludes in the literary deception.
“Melissa McCarthy and Richard E Grant are gloriously obnoxious.” Independent 5* Review
