DirectorMarielle Heller

It’s a Gay Essential:

Set in 1991; Lee Israel can’t get her publisher to return her calls, she’s been fired from a copywriting gig due to her short temper, and her only companion is an ageing cat given to her as a present by a former girlfriend. By chance, she happens to meet Jack Hock, an equally lonely man who has just been released from prison, where he served a sentence for armed robbery. As Lee discovers she can make hundreds of dollars plagiarising letters from literary greats, she brings Jack into her operation – with the pair having to improvise new ways of making money when booksellers begin to get suspicious. Directed by Marielle Heller and released in 2018, Can You Ever Forgive Me? stars Melissa McCarthy, Richard E. Grant and Dolly Wells. Read More Here

“Melissa McCarthy dials down her portrait of convicted celebrity-letter counterfeiter Lee Israel in Marielle Heller’s empathetic, shabby-chic New York expression of contorted creativity.”
Sight & Sound

“McCarthy is a revelation, whether pounding different makes of typewriter, insulting her agent or simply fussing over the cat.”
Dirty Movies

“Heller’s film helps us look past the actions they became defined by, to find a quietly moving account of a turbulent friendship – with two of the year’s most unexpectedly charming performances from both McCarthy and Grant.”
Alistair Ryder, Gay Essential
