In Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Melissa McCarthy stars as Lee Israel, the best-selling celebrity biographer (and cat lover) who made her living in the 1970’s and 80’s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estée Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen.

When her career goes into a sudden slump she takes a questionable route to keep the wolf from the door. Expertly faking letters from the stars, she sells them out of her New York flat for hundreds of dollars. But it’s not long before the FBI smell a rat. Lee enlists the help of loyal friend Jack Hock (Richard E. Grant) to keep tricks afloat.

Adapted from Lee Israel’s memoir of the same name, Can You Ever Forgive Me? recounts a true story of one woman who played with fire, got burnt, but still enjoyed the ride.
