Poly Parents: Can You Ever Forgive Me?

POLY PARENTS: We believe that mums and dads shouldn't have to miss out on great cinema, which is why we are now offering special daytime screenings just for them. Bring your under 3 for free and we'll create a friendly, half-lit and low sound atmosphere to keep them calm while you enjoy the film. 

Dir. Marielle Heller | 2018 USA | 106 mins | 15

Oscar® nominee Melissa McCarthy forges a magnificent performance in this shaggy, melancholic true story of the best-selling celebrity biographer Lee Israel, who found an unlikely new source of income as a literary forger.

Lee Israel made her living in the 1970s and 80s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, and Estee Lauder – but as she fell out of step with current tastes, her publisher stopped calling, the alcohol started flowing, and the money soon dried up. Desperate for a source of income, Lee found herself carving out a new career as a forger of celebrity letters, abetted by her loyal friend Jack (Oscar® nominee Richard E. Grant).

Based on a memoir written by Israel herself, Can You Ever Forgive Me is a fascinating black comedy supported by career best performances from Grant and McCarthy, allowing McCarthy’s breadth as an actor to shine in this rich, quietly dramatic role.

Tickets: £7.75 / £6.00 (inc. Poly Fund)

Please note the screening on Tuesday at 10:30 is the parent & baby screening, there are no concessions available for this screening.
