Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Richard E. Grant, Dolly Wells
Melissa McCarthy stars as Lee Israel a one- time best selling celebrity biographer who made her living in the 1970’s and 80’s profiling such people as Katharine Hepburn and Estee Lauder.
When her work failed to keep up with changing trends and she was unable to get published she turned her hand to deception, in order to make a living. Aided and abetted by her eccentric friend Jack (a gleeful turn from Richard E Grant) she forged celebrity letters, which together they sold to collectors.
“A brilliant performance from McCarthy” (Peter Bradshaw)
