Can You Ever Forgive Me? stars Melissa McCarthy as Lee Israel, a once best-selling celebrity biographer who finds herself broke and out of favour with the New York literary community. After selling a personal letter from Katharine Hepburn to pay the vet bill for her sick cat - who she prefers over most people - Israel partners with devilish conman Jack Hock (Richard E. Grant) on a radical enterprise: forging intimate letters in the singular voices of legendary writers like Dorothy Parker and Noel Coward.


A rare cinematic portrait of friendship between a lesbian and a gay man, Can You Ever Forgive Me? is hilarious and moving against the backdrop of early 1990s New York. As the law catches up with the unlikely pair, who drunkenly spar and commiserate in equal measure, director Marielle Heller delicately reveals an intimate portrait of queer loneliness, and the lengths we go to to escape ourselves.


"Can You Ever Forgive Me? is a true story that is too good to be true, a precious literary footnote that captures precisely the poisonous nature of unfulfilled ambition and squandered potential." - The Maine Edge
