Celebrity biographer – and cat lover – Lee Israel made her living in the 70′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.

Catch Earache’s fantastic Dolly Wells as bookshop owner Anna in “Can you Ever Forgive Me?”.

In UK Cinemas from 1st February.
