Can You Ever Forgive Me? ★★★½

As a fat, cynical, dyspeptic, self-loathing, largely invisible writer who despises networking and can’t fucking stand most people, I empathize with Lee Israel to a degree that is not very defensible, given her crimes and her general shittiness to everyone around her.

Also: Melissa McCarthy and Richard Grant sweeping piles of dried cat shit out from underneath a bed is a 2018 mood.
