Has Melissa McCarthy done drama before? This is the first non-comedy film I’ve seen her in anyway.
It looks like a gripping tale.
Can You Ever Forgive Me? is based on a true story about Lee Israel who is a failing author and desperate for money. She begins forging letters by deceased famous literary idols and selling them. She makes a pretty penny until suspicion is raised.
McCarthy sports a grey wig and judging by the trailer, this film is probably going to reveal previously unrecognised talents.
Julianne Moore was going to play the part but she dropped out.
I am so excited to watch this because I love Melissa McCarthy and I love films about authors. It looks like it’s going to be a thrilling drama.
