Can You Ever Forgive Me


Can You Ever Forgive Meby Lisa Dib  Melissa McCarthy’s long run of bumbling or silly comedy characters takes a sharp turn with Can You Ever Forgive Me?, a dark and bittersweet comedy about real-life literary grifter Lee Israel, played by McCarthy, with dashing Brit Richard E Grant as Jack Hock, her mischievous sidekick.     Can You Ever Forgive Me?, based on Lee’s memoir of the same name, is a gallows humour-fuelled tale of crime and failure, but it’s mostly about loneliness. Set in the 1990s, Israel is a bitter, misanthropic curmudgeon who, after some success as a writer and biographer, finds herself out of a job and desperately in need of cash. After parting with a personal letter from Katharine Hepburn in order to pay a vet bill, Israel has a lightbulb moment, and decides to start forging letters from personalities of note, like Dorothy Parker and Noel Coward. McCarthy deftly plays the role as many have said Lee really was: a rather unlikeable, foul-mouthed alcoholic, who found it hard to keep jobs, friends and lovers thanks to her repellent personality. She was not an untalented writer, but a caustic manner and bad judgement tanked her career as the ‘90s began, and she never recovered. McCarthy’s Lee Israel, for all of her meanness and poor behaviour, is still sympathetic - especially to those of us who love our cats or have poor social skills. Although it may have been explored in her book, it is never explored in the film why Lee is the way she is - what happened to make her so antisocial and cynical? I suppose we’ll never know. Grant’s Hock is an interesting character too who, unfortunately, we know even less about;considering the part he eventually played in her schemes, she writes little of him in her memoir, so much of their relationship is fictionalised for the sake of having a fun, classic double-team for the film. Grant plays a character that has been compared to his Withnail, but only, perhaps, if Withnail had aged into a flamboyantly gay drug dealer, whose loneliness is more informed by an inability to purge bad habits, rather than active misanthropy. Grant gives Hock a cheekiness and - as with Withnail - a drunken charisma that is rooted in his performance style. Hock is cunningly charming where Israel is determinedly driven- though both are desperate and lonely in their own ways, and trying to hide it.     The film - directed by Marielle Heller (The Diary of a Teenage Girl) and written by Nicole Holofcener (Parks and Recreation, Sex and the City) and Jeff Whitty - shows Lee’s resolute independence (often to her own detriment; she pushes away the kind-hearted Anna [Dolly Wells], the first woman to show her affection in some time, it seems) and her realisation that all she feels she knows how to do is write, and that forging clever literary documents is the only way she can make her living as a writer at that point in her career. Despite her crimes and spikiness, you have to be able to feel sympathy for her in that respect.   Can You Ever Forgive Me? is out now.   ​​​​​​​

Can You Ever Forgive Me

Can You Ever Forgive Me


Can You Ever Forgive Meby Lisa Dib  Melissa McCarthy’s long run of bumbling or silly comedy characters takes a sharp turn with Can You Ever Forgive Me?, a dark and bittersweet comedy about real-life literary grifter Lee Israel, played by McCarthy, with dashing Brit Richard E Grant as Jack Hock, her mischievous sidekick.     Can You Ever Forgive Me?, based on Lee’s memoir of the same name, is a gallows humour-fuelled tale of crime and failure, but it’s mostly about loneliness. Set in the 1990s, Israel is a bitter, misanthropic curmudgeon who, after some success as a writer and biographer, finds herself out of a job and desperately in need of cash. After parting with a personal letter from Katharine Hepburn in order to pay a vet bill, Israel has a lightbulb moment, and decides to start forging letters from personalities of note, like Dorothy Parker and Noel Coward. McCarthy deftly plays the role as many have said Lee really was: a rather unlikeable, foul-mouthed alcoholic, who found it hard to keep jobs, friends and lovers thanks to her repellent personality. She was not an untalented writer, but a caustic manner and bad judgement tanked her career as the ‘90s began, and she never recovered. McCarthy’s Lee Israel, for all of her meanness and poor behaviour, is still sympathetic - especially to those of us who love our cats or have poor social skills. Although it may have been explored in her book, it is never explored in the film why Lee is the way she is - what happened to make her so antisocial and cynical? I suppose we’ll never know. Grant’s Hock is an interesting character too who, unfortunately, we know even less about;considering the part he eventually played in her schemes, she writes little of him in her memoir, so much of their relationship is fictionalised for the sake of having a fun, classic double-team for the film. Grant plays a character that has been compared to his Withnail, but only, perhaps, if Withnail had aged into a flamboyantly gay drug dealer, whose loneliness is more informed by an inability to purge bad habits, rather than active misanthropy. Grant gives Hock a cheekiness and - as with Withnail - a drunken charisma that is rooted in his performance style. Hock is cunningly charming where Israel is determinedly driven- though both are desperate and lonely in their own ways, and trying to hide it.     The film - directed by Marielle Heller (The Diary of a Teenage Girl) and written by Nicole Holofcener (Parks and Recreation, Sex and the City) and Jeff Whitty - shows Lee’s resolute independence (often to her own detriment; she pushes away the kind-hearted Anna [Dolly Wells], the first woman to show her affection in some time, it seems) and her realisation that all she feels she knows how to do is write, and that forging clever literary documents is the only way she can make her living as a writer at that point in her career. Despite her crimes and spikiness, you have to be able to feel sympathy for her in that respect.   Can You Ever Forgive Me? is out now.   ​​​​​​​
