With stellar performances from Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant, this multi-Academy Award nominated true story about celebrity biographer Lee Israel finally makes its South Norwood premiere.
After making her living profiling the likes of Katherine Kepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, and Estee Lauder, Lee finds herself unable to get published as demand for more current celebrities rises. She turns her art form to deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack.
We’re pleased to be screening short film Small Axes, directed by Deborah Findlater, before the main feature. Find out more about our Shorts In The South initiative here.
