Directed by Marielle Heller; starring Melissa McCarthy, Dolly Wells and Richard E. Grant, Can You Ever Forgive Me? is based on the true story of Lee Israel.
Israel was a celebrity biographer whose writing fell out of step with current tastes. And so Israel turned her art form to deception…
There’s no doubt in my mind that McCarthy’s performance will prove notable. I just hope that the story’s execution is adequately engaging overall. I’d be even more confident if I didn’t feel as though this trailer had revealed more than it probably needed to.
Also, knowing that ‘acting queen’ Julianne Moore dropped out of playing McCarthy’s role is not a thing that results in increased confidence. Nevertheless, all could still turn out great because as well as being a biography / drama, Can You Ever forgive Me? is also a comedy.
Jennifer Westfeldt, Joanna Adler, Julie Ann Emery, Alice Kremelberg and Anna Deavere Smith also star.
Can You Ever forgive Me? Release Dates: October 19th, 2018…
