Grace Van Patten, Emily Mortimer, Ebon Moss-Bachr, Nat Wolff

Actress Dolly Wells’ directorial debut exposes introvert life in this engaging coming of age drama. Lillian, excellently played by Grace Van Patten, an “entitled oaf” is dumped by equally selfish Dad on Julia Price (Emily Mortimer) a successful writer. Hostilities commence at the first awkward meal, then they start communicating via tetchily witty notes. Established writers, satirically playing themselves at interview, punctuate the film; Zadie Smith and Jonathan Ames talk on Julia’s work and perfection while Martin Amis dismisses happiness.

Peter Bradshaw’s view on “this coolly comic tale of love and lies” in The Guardian.

The programme will also include our current BRIT School Showcase film Evening (U, 3 mins), a Year 12 music video directed by Alice Pearson, James Mason and Rachel Goulding. The music is by Will Beresford. We look forward to welcoming Alice, James and Rachel for a short Q&A that will take place after the 12 November screening.

CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME? (15) – 2018 USA 106 mins

Director: Marielle Heller
Stars: Melissa McCarthy, Richard E. Grant, Dolly Wells

Biographer Lee Israel scraped a living in the 1970s, beset by writer’s block and alcoholism – until she discovered that the letters of beloved celebrities and authors would fetch far higher prices if they included scandalous content. Drawn into systematic forgery and even theft, she claimed that she never regretted her actions. This hugely entertaining yet melancholic comedy has considerable psychological insight, and has earned Oscar nominations for both McCarthy and Grant.

The 7:30pm programme will include our current BRIT School Showcase film Peace And Quiet (U) directed by George Hadley.
