Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Marielle Heller


106 min

English (without subtitles)

Based on the true story of writer Lee Israel, who forged letters from dead celebrities to make ends meet, this is an incredibly entertaining yet deeply moving story of alienation and failure. Shut out by the snobbish literary scene of New York, Israel finds her partner in crime in loveable rogue and fellow queer Jack Hock. With both of them earning Oscar nominations for their performances, this boozy adventure through the bars and bookshops of New York is sure to both captivate and delight.

The Cinematheque & Empire has level access.
