(2018. USA 1 hr, 47 min. Directed by Marielle Heller. R.) H&R Block Ellsworth sponsors this 2019 Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar-nominee. Melissa McCarthy (in a performance nominated for this year’s Best Actress Oscar) stars as Lee Israel, the best-selling celebrity biographer (and cat lover) who made her living in the 1970's and 80's profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estée Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. When Lee found herself unable to get published because she had fallen out of step with the marketplace, she turned her art form to deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack (Richard E. Grant who was also nominated this year in the Best Supporting Actor Oscar category). With Jane Curtain, Ben Falcone and Anna Devere Smith.
