When Lee Israel falls out of step with current tastes, she turns her art form to deception.
The film had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival on September 1. It also screened at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2018.
You can be an asshole if you're famous. You can't be unknown and be such a bitch, Lee.
When Lee is seen walking toward the 86th Street subway station, she passes the Citibank branch at 86th and Broadway, with an advertisement for Citi Priority Banking in the window. Citi Priority did not exist until 2016.
As the closing credits start, they move to the left side of the screen and information about the protagonists appears on the right.
Ahead of the film's release in Australia, the distributor chose to pre-cut the film in order to obtain an M classification. These changes removed detail of hard drug misuse (cocaine snorting) through re-framing, and also removed the film's sole use of very strong language by re-dubbing the term with a milder phrase. The uncut international version was later approved for a DVD/Video release with an uncut MA15+ classification.
