Hendersonville Film Society

June 20, 2019 @ 12:00 pm


Hendersonville Film Society meets every Sunday at Lake Point Landing, 333 Thompson S., Hendersonville, in the Smoky Mountain Theatre. Call Elaine for more information at 828-697-7310. On June 20 at noon there will be a luncheon meeting in the Lake Point Landing dining room. Admission is $18 paid in advance by calling Elaine at 828-697-7310. The movie is Can You Ever Forgive Me, a 2018 fact-based drama on the life of author Lee Israel, who strikes gold in the 1970s and ’80s with a series of successful celebrity biographies profiling Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estée Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. At odds with changing times and as readers tastes shift, Israel’s demons disrupt her writing and she turns to forgery to support herself. Academy Award nominee Melissa McCarthy stars in this gripping tale of a good life gone wrong in pursuit of fame.  Richard E. Grant was also nominated for Best Supporting Actor and contemporary screenwriters Nicole Holofcener and Jeff Whitty for Best Adapted Screenplay.
