Melissa McCarthy is Transformational in Can You Ever Forgive Me
Melissa McCarthy as Lee Israel transforms from comedy queen to dramatic actress. I, for one, never had any doubt that my girl couldn't pull this off. McCarthy is gifted. Period. Richard E. Grant as Israel's partner in crime (literally) Jack Hock is charming and never delivers a dull moment. Every scene these two share together as misfits who find each other and commit literary crimes keep you riveted to the screen.
