Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy) made her living in the 1970's and 80's profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estee Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen.

"Melissa McCarthy pulls off her best performance here, directed by one of the best new directors, Marielle Heller (also did the well-crafted "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood), and the writing is subtly brilliant. "
