This true story begins with frumpy Manhattan celebrity biography Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy) as her luck begins to change. Her cat is unwell, her job has just been lost and she’s received an eviction warning meaning that she needs to make some money, and fast. She turns her creative hand to forging letters from well-known writers to earn a living. It works, but after getting her best friend Jack (Richard E. Grant) to help her stave off the authorities, it seems this money-making deception is drawing glances from all the wrong places. Directed by Marielle Heller. ~ Clare Perez-Izaguirre Lopez, Rovi

display_descriptionLee Israel made her living in the 1970s and 1980s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estee Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. Though Lee Israel has undeniable profiling skills, her work has grown stale and hackneyed, rendering her profession unnecessary and insignificant. Now in times of financial hardship, Israel must find other ways to make a living. With assistance from her steadfast friend, Jack, the two endeavor to keep Israel afloat. With a dose of trickery and deceptive eye, they do just that.
