'Can You Ever Forgive Me?' Review

Melissa McCarthy is the perfect Lee Israel in 'Can You Ever Forgive Me?' (TIFF review)
Lee Israel was a bestselling author before she decided to make forgery her next profession. A job that suited her very well. Almost too well. — As Melissa McCarthy is perfectly cast as the washed-up writer Lee Israel, it's hard to imagine Julianne Moore was about to play her back in 2015. While Moore was at TIFF with her less than impressive role in 'Gloria Bell', Melissa McCarthy nails this dramatic performance, never overdoing it, but not dodging the occasional humor either.
