Official Trailer

The celebrity biographer Lee Israel was herself an excellent creator of ‘alternative facts’ and fooled many people who should have known better. Melissa McCarthy reaches a peak in her acting career with this role as Israel, who, in a dip in her literary career, began forging and selling letters from various luminaries. Her friend Jack (Richard E. Grant) comes up with his own devious scheme and their interactions provide hearty laughs and emotional depth in equal measure. Best Actress Nominee (Melissa McCarthy), 2019 Academy Awards.
