Film Screening – “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”
November 2 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm$5 – $9
Nominated for 3 Oscars and winner of another 50 awards, this is a bizarre, compelling tale about real-life biographer Lee Israel’s huge talent and subsequent descent into alcoholism and artistic deception on a grand scale. Melissa McCarthy gives a moving, insightful performance as the fabulous, flawed heroine, wonderfully paired with British actor Richard E. Grant, who is both hilarious and tragic in support. Set in New York in the 1970s and 80s, this is a caustic portrait of the kind of true-life eccentric New York can (and did) produce.
