HKFanatic's rating of the film Can You Ever Forgive Me?

Here's an awards season film I saw the trailer for and (wrongfully) assumed would be a visually uninteresting talkie—but no, this is well shot by Brandon Trost and, more than that, represents one of the best films I've seen about writers, precisely because it takes a pickaxe to the notion that the writing life is anything but extremely difficult and frequently unrewarding even when one is turning out quality work.
