    Event Description:
    Former SIU theater student Melissa McCarthy is nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Actress category for her role in “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” She stars as the real-life Lee Israel, the best-selling celebrity biographer who made her living in the 1970s and ‘80s profiling the likes of Katharine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estée Lauder and 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, nominated for Best Support Actor). Rated R (for language, including some sexual references and brief drug use)
