Must-See or Skippable? Ranking The 2019 Oscar Movies
MUST-SEE: Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Can You Ever Forgive Me? is about a forger. It’s not the most exciting subject on paper, but it makes for an interesting, wry comedy. Starring Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant, who are both nominated for their work, are both funny and angry and reserved.
It’s not a grand, showy movie, exactly, but it does involve a couple of heists. Mostly, though, it’s a character study of prickly people who don’t always get along with the world they live in. They’re not good, exactly, but they are human, sometimes painfully so. That’s what makes the movie worth your time.
