See the true story of Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy), a best-selling celebrity biographer turned maverick fraudster, in Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Forever a devoted friend to cats and once a well-paid celebrity biography, Israel profiled the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead and Estee Lauder in the 1970s and 80s.

Falling on hard times and no longer able to get published, because she has fallen out of step with current tastes, she decides to turn her art form to deception.

Abetted by her loyal friend Jack (Richard E. Grant), Lee sets about embellishing and selling faked letters from celebrities.

But will the law catch up with her?
