Richard E. Grant is a nice and funny man, and a great actor. Talking about his last film, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, by Marielle Heller, we discover how easy it has been for him to click and connect with his co-star Melissa McCarthy, and how he worked to build up his character. After a 30 years old career he still manages to get roles in very diverse films, from independent ones like this to Star Wars. Pretty impressive, indeed.

Can You Ever Forgive Me?: Lee Israel is a best-selling celebrity biographer – and cat lover – who made her living in the 1970s and 80s profiling the likes of Katherine Hepburn, Tallulah Bankhead, Estée Lauder and journalist Dorothy Kilgallen. When she found herself unable to get published because she had fallen out of step with the marketplace, Lee made a bold and irreversible career change: she turned her art form to crime, theft and deception, abetted by her loyal friend Jack.
