Can You Ever Forgive Me (2018)

Viewing February '19 ///

A light, enjoyable and unconventional journey. Fronted by Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant, they effortlessly engross us by riffing off of one another with an unlikely chemistry, that certainly carries the film. Whilst this true story resonates for many of us with goals that we can empathise with, it somewhat lacks in antagonistic forces. Although wholly established, the physical antagonists seem considerably disconnected from the narrative, and for me, loses momentum as it relies heavily on paranoia as a device to create tension, that ultimately folds under its own weight in an anticlimax when the physical antagonists inevitably catch up with McCarthy.
