I started to give this film a "9" rating, but frankly couldn't find anything in it that I felt was less than exceptional. I had never heard of Lee Israel, and Melissa McCarthy's funny and often heartbreaking performance in this film has made me want to read her book that inspired this film and learn more about her. The screenplay has a wonderful way of portraying Israel and Jack Hock as criminals, but at the same time making them both very human and very vulnerable, each in their own way. There is a scene between them near the end that tore me up. I hope this film finds the accolades it deserves, it's great to finally see a gem in a year of remakes, CGI and dull comedies.

This film was great! Superb acting and well directed.9/10.
I bought Israel's, Kilgallen back in the 70s. One of the best books I'd ever read. The book's subject was compelling & Lee's writing sublime. Of course I then sought out her Bankhead book & enjoyed that too. I also ran out & purchased the Lauder book. This one seemed, unnecessary. Should've been a lengthy article. I then spent years searching for new work. Could never understand why a great writer wasn't writing. Of course, I then found CYEFM. I'm just thrilled that she's been immortalized in film. Also love that many of "her" letters are out there.
