When bestselling celebrity biographer, Lee Israel, 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.

“One of the things I loved about Can You Ever Forgive Me?—aside from the radiantly perfect casting of McCarthy and Grant, a Withnail and I–esque pair of drinking buddies, except this time they’re both asocial, hilarious Withnails—was Heller’s quiet confidence in establishing the milieu where all this typing and lying took place. There’s no snappy montage to explain to us how the rare documents trade usually functions, no wiseacre secondary character who sits down with Lee to explain the process to her (and, condescendingly, us). Our resourcefully sneaky heroine improvises her forgery business as she goes along, based on what she learns from each attempted sale; in the same way, the audience is left to gather the basics from the impeccably observed details of each interaction.” – Dana Stevens, Slate
