I didn't know what to expect with this film. I was very pleasantly surprised.This movie is not a comedy and the performers did a great job of capturing people who are not always made for this world.Melissa McCarthy gives a impressive performance as Lee Israel and Richard Grant is wonderful as her ne'er do well friend and accomplice.I really like the atmosphere and the ability to capture the grit and seediness of New York in the early 90's.Marielle Heller and McCarthy did a fantastic job of taking someone with all the likability of my mother in law and making her sympathetic.

Going into CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME? I had rather low expectations. As I walked out of the theater, I was impressed by the fact that director Marielle Heller and actress Melissa McCarthy (who last starred in the disastrous THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS) had managed to make me care about a film focused on subject matter that I found rather uninteresting to begin with. The concept at the heart of this film will certainly appeal to some, but unfortunately for me, it was the one thing actively working against the film from the get-go. And indeed, during the film's rather dull first ten minutes, I feared that I would be bored for the next hour and a half. Thankfully, however, the introduction of Richard E. Grant's character immediately elevated the film, and his dynamic with McCarthy's Lee Israel (an author who forged hundreds of letters in the 1990s) is undoubtedly the highlight of the film, providing hearty laughs and emotional depth in equal measure. And McCarthy herself proves more than capable of handling a meaty dramatic role that aptly showcases her talent and makes one wish that she didn't star in such films as the aforementioned HAPPYTIME MURDERS. To all the filmmakers out there: McCarthy has talent. Use it.
I might not have been very invested in the film's story, but McCarthy and Grant (who should definitely be in the running for a Best Supporting Actor nomination next year) certainly make CAN YOU EVERY FORGIVE ME? worth watching.
I thoroughly enjoyed every part of this film. I see from some of the reviews that thoughtful character inspired pieces that are not Marvel Superhero movies may not be that popular. The "dumbing down" of America......Expertly acted and written, incredible performance from Melissa McCarthy whom I had heretofore only known as a comedienne. Richard E. Grant was amazing, nuanced.... Impeccable sets and lighting really lent to the somewhat "dark" subject matter. I can't recommend it highly enough......
