Can You Ever Forgive Me? Melissa McCarthy, Richard E. Nicole Holofcener, Jeff Whittly Director: McCarthy commands the screen as the late Lee Israel, a once-successful biographer who fell onto hard times in the early s.
To make ends meet, Israel began forging correspondence from legendary literary figures like Noel Coward and Lillian Hellman, then selling them to unsuspecting collectors. Skillfully adopting the voices of each famous writer, she created documents so convincing that to this day some of her fake letters remain in circulation, their true provenance undetected.
Through it all, Israel maintains a sense of poker-faced fatalism. Utterly disinterested in human companionship, she barks back at anyone who speaks to her, making eye contact with people only long enough to burn holes through them.
