Lee Israel made her living in the 1970s and 1980s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estee Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. Though Lee Israel has undeniable profiling skills, her work has grown stale and hackneyed, rendering her profession unnecessary and insignificant. Now in times of financial hardship, Israel must find other ways to make a living. With assistance from her steadfast friend, Jack, the two endeavor to keep Israel afloat. With a dose of trickery and deceptive eye, they do just that.

Really liked this movie. The acting was superb down to the bookseller who ratted Jack out to the FBI. He was visibly agitated in that scene. Every detail was perfect other than no closure with the bookseller who gave Lee her short stories to read. Highly recommend.

Really good acting from Melissa Mc and Richard E Grant. That's what kept
me watching because I didn't really like the characters or the overall story, which is based on true events. So this sounds like a half-hearted recommendation but I feel more enthusiastic than that. Worth seeing!

Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy) made her living in the 1970's and 80's 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). An adaptation of the memoir "Can You Ever Forgive Me?" relays the true story of the best-selling celebrity biographer
