Can You Ever Forgive Me? (2018)Reviewed byrockman182Vote: 7/10

I usually don't end up liking Melissa McCarthy films. She is usually in comedies directed by her husband that aren't funny and have nothing good going for it. I was intrigued in seeing her take on a more serious role and one based on an actual biographical person than a made up "funny" person. I never heard of Lee Israel or the case of her forgery and all the stuff she got away with so I wanted to learn more about this. I enjoyed this film. Its not anything that's gonna stick out when the year ends but for a one time watch its fine, and I can finally say I enjoyed a McCarthy performance quite a bit.

The film is about the real life story of down out of luck biographical author, Lee Israel. Her books aren't doing well and she finds it hard to find inspiration. She can't afford rent or veterinarian care for her sick cat. She decides to forge letters signed and typed up by famous entertainment personalities. At first she finds the scam to be lucrative but eventually the buyers become suspicious and the FBI get involved. The film basically tells the tale of her forgery, until she gets caught, and the aftermath.

McCarthy does a good job here. She doesn't completely disappear into the role but its a believable performance that showcases her best qualities. The film is proficient in mixing comedy with humor and brings forth a rather intriguing plot in a way that keeps you engaged. I already liked Marielle Heller as The Diary of a Teenage Girl was a really interesting and well made film as it was. I think she finds a penchant for storytelling that mixes humor and drama well.

Its easy to see why something like this would have been easy to get away with in an earlier time. Its an idea people wouldn't easily think of. Crime doesn't pay, after a while anyways. If you want to see a solid biopic and an even more solid Melissa McCarthy performance then this is your film. its not anything amazing but its a generally interesting tale about a shady author that you may not have known about.


See it for the performancesReviewed by2001ASOfanVote: 10/10

McCarthy and Grant shine, but Dolly Wells and Jane Curtin were standouts for me, too. The whole cast and their performances are the reason to see it--if you're like me and enjoy the heck out of fine acting on quiet display in a film.

Subtle yet effectiveReviewed byjg_1977Vote: 8/10

Can You Ever Forgive Me? is a heartbreaking, bitingly funny, and all around terrific film. Although no aspect of this movie is subpar, the two elements that stood out to me upon leaving the theater were the screenplay and two lead performances. Screenwriters Nicole Holofcener andJeff Whitty blend the tones of melancholy and levity brilliantly, reminding me quite of bit of Woody Allen's work. The story they tell is subtle and gradual, letting us get acquainted with the characters before unfolding the plot. Can You Ever Forgive Me? is a true dramedy, where the witty dialogue will have you laughing out loud, but the tragedy of Lee Israel's daily life will cut you to your core. This film's strong writing is also elevated by two of the best performances of the year, from Melissa McCarthy leading and Richard E. Grant supporting. In the hands of McCarthy an Grant, the characters of Lee Israel and Jack are given both emotional depth and charm, with some absolutely delicious chemistry between the two. Additionally, director Marielle Heller deserves praise for the pacing and tone of the film, as both are spot on with the story she is trying to tell. It seems she was also keen enough to know that with two terrific actors, she could tend towards subtlety and let their performances guide the story. The only criticism I can make is that the third act is rather devoid of tension. As Israel's life upends you'd expect to be gripped with suspense and anticipation, but what we got was more of the same leisure and melancholy tone. Overall, Can You Ever Forgive Me? is one of my favorite films of the year so far, and definitely worth a watch.
