“It’s the human side of the character that makes this McCarthy’s best performance to date, revealing haunting insights into friendship, loneliness, and creative insecurity.”~Variety
Aroview: Melissa McCarthy delivers a fearless performance in this compelling drama based on the confessional memoir of Lee Israel, whose languishing career as a writer takes a turn when she begins forging letters from deceased celebrities.

5 stars (Exceptional) Very original and extremely witty. Outstanding acting by McCarthy & Grant create recognizable but unforgettable characters. For me, one of the "films of the year" because of the near-perfect integration of great acting & script-writing.~Sandy
