Summary
  • Lee Israel who made her living in the '70s and '80s 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. An adaptation of the memoir, the true story of best-selling celebrity biographer (and friend to cats)
  • "Believe the Oscar buzz for Melissa McCarthy in this true story of an out-of -work author who took up forgery to pay the bills."--Rolling Stone
  • "Partly because the movie is so splendidly and completely absorbed in its characters and their millieu, it communicates much more than a quirky appreciation or old books an odd readers."--A.O. Scott
  • "McCarthy's best performance to date, revealing haunting insights into friendship, loneliness, and creative insecurity."--Variety
