A treat. Melissa McCarthy was astonishing. Lovely melancholy tone to the whole thing.

I haven't seen this but I've seen that Richard E Grant's been nominated for an Oscar for it and it's lovely seeing videos of him on Twitter and such all excited. Withnail finally having his day.

Great movie though I did feel a certain portion of the ending was a bid maudlin just because it was so abrupt.

People on here have disagreed, but I've always thought Melissa McCarthy is extremely talented (both comedically and not) stuck doing mostly garbage movies, so to see her nominated for an Oscar is great.

What's it about?

Female forger (McCarthy) and her alcoholic luvvie pal (Grant) get into trouble after she starts selling fake correspondence for big money. Based on a true story.

I did like REG shouting "BOOZE!" I was hoping he'd ask for cake too.

Wonderful film

Understated performance in the central role along with a marvellous Withnail-esque sidekick turn, a great double act.

We all enjoyed it. Dark humour, some beautiful shots of Manhattan, and very little sympathy or Hollywoody sudden character change/redemption on show.
