Stafford Film Theatre: CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?
CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME? / Mariette Heller / USA 208 / 107 min / Cert 15
Set in New York in 1991 and starring Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant, this film ticks most boxes for the discerning viewer: dark humour, an unlikely friendship, an original and intriguing story and, perhaps most vividly, a visceral depiction of loneliness (Emily Yoshida, Vulture). It tells the true story of Lee Israel, a failing writer, who schemed to gorge letters by famous writers and sell them, ultimately with devastating consequences. McCarthy and Grant were nominated for Academy Awards, it was given a 98% approval rating by film review site Rotten Tomatoes and also won a place in the National Board of Review's Top Ten films of 2018.
The programme starts at 7.30pm and the main feature is at 7.45pm.
