Trailer: McCarthy In “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”

Fox Searchlight has released a new trailer for “Can You Ever Forgive Me?,” the upcoming drama starring Melissa McCarthy about best-selling celebrity biographer Lee Israel.

Israel made her living in the 1970s and 80s profiling the likes of Katherine 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)

Jane Curtin, Dolly Wells, Anna Deavere Smith and Jennifer Westfeldt co-star. Marielle Heller (“The Diary of a Teenage Girl”) helms from a script written by Nicole Holofcener and Jeff Whitty. The film opens this Fall.
