Critic Reviews for Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Believe the Oscar buzz for Melissa McCarthy in this true story of an out-of-work author who took up forgery to pay the bills. McCarthy shows she has what it takes to tackle drama and comedy and all stops in between: the power to amaze.
No one does dissolute hubris with as much charm as Grant, and his ebullience is the perfect foil to the misanthropic McCarthy.
Maintaining an audience's sympathy for a character through their most fumbling, frustrating lows requires compassion and clarity of purpose, both of which McCarthy amply demonstrates here.
"Can You Ever Forgive Me?" feels worn and lived in - in a good way - with a world of musty vintage tomes and bar-room desperation given emotional life through McCarthy and a super supporting turn from Richard E. Grant.
"Can You Ever Forgive Me?" demands not our love for this supremely difficult person but rather our respect for her defiance of an unsympathetic world.
