20th Century Fox announces Can You Ever Forgive Me? on DVD
Melissa McCarthy has made a career with being the hilarious bumbling foil in some great films including Bridesmaids and The Heat as well as the TV series Mike & Molly and most recently the revived Gilmore Girls. While she has done some drama in the past her latest film proved to be a great new direction for the talented actress in Can You Ever Forgive Me? from director Marielle Heller that got her as well as co-star Richard E. Grant both nominated for an Oscar.
Can You Ever Forgive Me? follows the true story of bestselling celebrity biographer (and friend to cats) Lee Israel, who 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.
In addition to the film this release offers up bonus content including deleted scenes, galleries, commentary and featurettes taking you behind bringing this story to life. Grab your copy of Can You Ever Forgive Me? when it hits digital on February 5th and then on DVD on February 19th from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.
