This little movie is a hidden gem.
Starring Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant. This takes a real life look at author Lee Israel’s turbulent life. Set in the 80’s we see Isreal struggling to get published and watching her life take a drastic turn to crime. Grant is brilliant as her cohort. Jane Curtain makes a small but mighty appearance as her publisher.
Quirky, funny, sad and real. Lots of swearing so be advised.
I enjoyed this but you may not, as Dorothy Parker said, can you ever forgive me?
