Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Rated 14 Accompaniment (Coarse Language, Substance Abuse) ~ Runs 106 minutes

Dir.: Marielle Heller, US

Melissa McCarthy, Richard E. Grant, Dolly Wells

“Two beautiful losers come together in Can You Ever Forgive Me?, based on the true story of a once-promising author and a disreputable rake who turn to literary forgery to pay the bills. All right, maybe they're not so beautiful - she's a rageaholic, he's a homeless drug abuser - but that only makes them more endearing. In this adaptation of Lee Israel's 2008 memoir, it's them against the world... Melissa McCarthy plays Israel, whom we first meet as a grouchy copy editor at The New Yorker. She's drinking something on the rocks at her desk and gets fired. Only gradually do we realize that Israel was once a best-selling author of biographies... Chain-drinking Scotch at a local bar, she meets Jack Hock (the great Richard E. Grant) , a gay Lothario with a Dickensian flair... They become fast friends and, later, partners in crime. When Israel discovers a hidden talent - writing letters in the ‘voices’ of dead celebrities like Dorothy Parker and Noel Coward - Hock proves a garrulous peddler to store owners who buy and sell such collectibles. Can You Ever Forgive Me? is a winning comedy-drama with just a touch of New York grit... It also marks a career-high performance from McCarthy, seemingly born to play the role of this angry, awful, somehow empathetic misfit. Likewise, Grant delivers what may be a personal best as Hock, a lovable lowlife with an unstompable pride... They're terrific together, a scuzzball Laurel and Hardy on the mean streets of Manhattan.” - Rafer Guzmán, Newsday
