Storyline

Lee Israel, a respected biographer, falls on hard times and turns to counterfeiting the letters of deceased writers and celebrities in order to pay her rent. When the forgeries start to raise suspicion, she turns to stealing the actual letters from library archives and sells them through an ex-con fence she met in a bar, while the FBI is closing in on the scam. In 1993, she pleaded guilty to conspiracy to transport stolen property and served six months under house arrest. She died in 2014.
