Can You Ever Forgive Me?

"Believe the Oscar buzz for Melissa McCarthy in this true story of an out-of-work author who took up forgery to pay the bills. McCarthy shows she has what it takes to tackle drama and comedy and all stops in between: the power to amaze." - Rolling Stone

Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy, the one and only) was a journalist who made her name profiling everyone from Katherine Hepburn to journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. When her career stalls, she faces financial ruin… but the chance discovery of a letter from vaudeville star Fanny Brice kickstarts Israel's second life – as a master criminal.

Israel excelled at capturing the voices of famous folks, people whose words the world clamored for even long after their deaths. So, accompanied by a friend (Richard E. Grant, Withnail and I), Israel went into business as a forger, pirating the words of the famous at her typewriter and selling her shams as the real deal. And they fooled everyone until the day they didn't.

The superbly talented Melissa McCarthy joins forces with acclaimed director Marielle Heller (The Diary of a Teenaged Girl) and writers Nicole Holofcener (Enough Said) and Jeff Whitty (Avenue Q) for an incredible true story about impeccable fakery.

"McCarthy's best performance to date." - Peter Debruge, Variety

"McCarthy’s startling and haunting performance always keeps us riveted."
