Event description

Description

Down-and-out celebrity biographer and cantankerous New Yorker Lee Isarel (expertly played by Melissa McCarthy) is broke. When her beloved cat becomes ill and she can't pay the medical bills, she turns to forging and selling letters by literary luminaries and finds she's quite good at it—as Lee puts it, she's a better Dorothy Parker than Dorothy Parker. Her drunken camaraderie with her lone friend Jack Hock (an absolutely charming Richard E. Grant) is the beating heart of this quietly queer film. Courtesy of Fox Searchlight.

A discussion with actor Melissa McCarthy follows the screening. Moderated by writer Roxane Gay.
