3SMReviews: Can You Ever Forgive Me
This post contains affiliate links. Please read my disclosure statement for more information.
Marielle Heller achieves the ultimate in Can You Ever Forgive Me. She gives us a movie about an unlikable character* and provides us with enough details so we can feel sympathy and like that character. Part of the credit goes to the marvelous Melissa McCarthy, who excels in a person who can’t let anyone in, and feels love only for her cat.**
Consider also watching: Heller’s excellent The Diary of a Teenage Girl
Cost: $5.55 (though free due to gift cards)
Where watched: Regal City Center Stadium 12.
*A post-40, lesbian, fat woman to be precise.
**I also love that this movie was not about a total transformation of this very flawed character.
