Forgoing her usual comedy antics, Melissa McCarthy looks really good in the trailer for the biopic drama Can You Forgive Me?

When bestselling celebrity biographer, Lee Israel, is no longer able to get published because she has fallen out of step with current tastes, she turns her art form to deception, abetted by her loyal friend, Jack (Richard E. Grant).

Watch the trailer!

Can You Forgive Me? opens October 19.
