The latest in Campbeltown Picture House’s distilled series, for one night only, is Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Melissa McCarthy stars in the adaptation of the memoir Can You Ever Forgive Me? being screened at 7.45pm on Monday March 18.
It is the true story of best-selling celebrity biographer (and friend to cats) as Lee Israel who made her living in the 1970’s and 80’s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estee Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen.
When Lee is no longer able to get published because she has fallen out of step with current tastes, she turns her art form to deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack – Richard E. Grant.
