Melissa McCarthy stars in the adaptation of the memoir CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?, the true story of best-selling celebrity biographer (and friend to cats) Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy) who made her living in the 1970ís and 80ís profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estee Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. When Lee is no longer able to get published because she has fallen out of step with current tastes, she turns her art form to deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack (Richard E. Grant).

Saw the trailer for it today in front of Old Man with a Gun. Looks good and opens today in wider release. Will use my Sinemia for it and see it tomorrow.

Wow, just saw this and it was fantastic. I can only take MM in small doses, mainly when she's in her R-rated best, and this was rated R. Richard E. Grant was also awesome.

Having just seen Old Man & the Gun, there similar themes that cross over. I believe this is playing in limited release, so if it's near you then I highly recommend it.

Caught this on a plane recently. I thought it was pretty good. This isn't your typical McCarthy crap that she is getting pigeonholed into.

This movie does have some interesting history to it.

That was impressive, she had a few outs there and actually told the truth The director at that time (who adapted the screenplay) also left the movie shortly there after.

I wonder if Ms. McCarthy didn't like her limelight being shadowed.

So you've seen the movie. How can you know how well Moore would've done? Melissa got an Oscar nom so must've not sucked.

Moore doesn't strike me as a proper fit for the material.

This premiered on HBO last weekend

I thought it was a good movie and I can see how it got some Oscar nominations.

I admit McCarthy was good in this and you probably would have never known it was her if you knew nothing about the cast in the movie.
