Based on an incredible true story, Lee Israel is a frustrated, hard- drinking author who can barely afford to pay her rent or bills in 1990s New York. Desperate for money, Israel soon hatches a scheme to forge letters by famous writers and sell them to bookstores and collectors. When the dealers start to catch on, Lee recruits a dubious friend to help her continue her self-destructive cycle of trickery and deceit. Starring Melissa McCarthy and an Oscar nominated performance by Richard E. Grant.
