Director: Marielle Heller

Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Richard E. Grant

Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy) made her living in the 1970's and 80's 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 (Richard E. Grant). An adaptation of the memoir Can You Ever Forgive Me? relays the true story of the best-selling celebrity biographer (and friend to cats).

Relaxed screenings

Relaxed Screenings are aimed at encouraging and welcoming audiences who would benefit from a more relaxed environment to enjoy our films.

This includes (but is not limited to) those with autism spectrum disorder, people with sensory and communication needs, people with learning disabilities, people with symptoms of dementia, those who require medical equipment and families with young children. Staff are ready to assist with any help the audience may need during their visit to the screening.

At a relaxed screening, there is dim lighting and the music or soundtrack volume is reduced. Individuals are welcome to make noise, move around and leave the space. The doors open earlier than usual, and, as with all of our screenings and performances, food and drink are welcome in the space.
