ScreenTalks Archive: Can You Ever Forgive Me?


For our final ScreenTalk of Season 2, we’re talking with the gregarious Richard E Grant and his role in Can You Ever Forgive Me?, for which he received his first (very deserved) Academy Award nomination. 

Speaking with host Edith Bowman, Grant discusses his role as Jack Hock: an alcoholic charmer with some withering one-liners, who helps sometimes friend Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy) forge letters from famous authors. Grant discusses the inspiration for the role, working with McCarthy and director Marielle Heller and of course, there’s mention of his most famous role as Withnail. 

The Barbican ScreenTalks Archive podcast is presented by Ellen E Jones and produced by Jane Long for Loftus Media. Listen to more episodes on: barbican.org.uk/screentalksarchive
