  • 1 stars Can I have my money back?
  • 5 stars Very moving and honest film
  • 1 stars The person I can't forgive is the screenwriter.
  • 5 stars The best movie I have seen in years. The star of the movie was positively brilliant. Her male friend , Grant, also stole the show. I was sorry when it ended.
  • 5 stars Yeah, it was like a samurai drama set in New York, and it reminded me of Akira Kurosawa’s ‘IKIRU’, where “the pen is mightier...” This movie was heartfelt and eye-catching, and the storyline came across wonderfully! Unmistakably cool...
  • 5 stars Melissa McCarthy Brillant! The story was a revelation! Bravo!
  • 4 stars Great movie. However I'm a little hard pressed to understand it being labelled as a "Comedy". It's more drama/based on true story.
  • 4 stars Gritty. Life in all it's squalid splendor. Nice change for Melissa.
  • 4 stars Unique story well told, both Ms M. and Mr Grant are wonderful. Grant will be nominated for best supporting actor.
  • 5 stars Melissa McCarthy never disappoints and her role as Lee Israel demonstrates her talent expands way beyond comedy. This is a wonderful film and must see for any thinking person. I enjoyed the writing (the film itself, as well as being entertained by the portrayal of Ms. Israel's talent and clever, albeit desperate, fraudulent writings) as well as the acting. The story, outrageous yet true, the actors, and the pace at which the story unfolds are wonderful and held my interest from start to finish. I look forward to reading Lee Israel's book. (and I would see this film again....not the norm for me)
