“Can you Ever Forgive Me?” features Melissa McCarthy in a dramatic role and she knocks the ball out of the park. She plays a curmudgeon writer who is not very successful. The only one she is nice to is her sick cat. She comes up with the idea of typing letters from famous people and selling them and she’s good at it. Based on a true story, the film is interesting. McCarthy is quite good and almost unrecognizable. She builds a friendship with a gay drifter, played by Richard E. Grant.
