Can You Ever Forgive Me? (Cert 15) Dir Marielle Heller          USA 2019        106 mins

Oscar nominees Melissa McCarthy and Richard E Grant are perfectly paired in this adaptation of the memoir of real-life literary forger Lee Israel.

In the 1970s and 80s Lee Israel wrote best-selling biographies of celebrities such as Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead and Estée Lauder. But when her style went out of fashion and her books stopped selling, she carved out an unlikely new career as a forger of celebrity letters, giving her a lucrative source of income and restoring her self-confidence as a writer.

Career topping performances from McCarthy and Grant make this a hugely entertaining film which cuts an elegant path between humour and pathos.
