Twentieth Century Fox has revealed some of the home release info for the award-winning Can You Ever Forgive Me? which makes its way to digital, DVD, Blu-ray etc. in June.

Here’s the official synopsis and expected bonus material.

From the director of The Diary Of A Teenage Girl, Marielle Heller, comes Can You Ever Forgive Me?, a true-life comedic drama that sees Melissa McCarthy (Spy, Bridesmaids) and Richard E. Grant (Withnail & I) come together as terrific partners-in-crime. Both McCarthy and Grant received a BAFTA®, Academy Award® and Golden Globe nomination for Leading Actress and Supporting Actor respectively for their incredible performances in this fascinating & captivating biopic.

McCarthy portrays Lee Israel, a frustrated, hard-drinking author who can barely afford to pay her rent or bills in 1990s New York. Desperate for money, Israel soon hatches a scheme to forge letters by famous writers and sell them to bookstores and collectors. When the dealers start to catch on, Lee recruits a dubious friend to help her continue her self-destructive cycle of trickery and deceit.

Can You Ever Forgive Me? is a darkly funny and must-see story, available on Digital Download on 27th May and on DVD & VOD from 3rd June.
