Synopsis

Director Clint Eastwood returns to seismic 20th century American history once more for this polished biopic of J Edgar Hoover, the man who practically created the FBI and presided over it for 48 years. Eastwood, Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and star Leonardo DiCaprio don't shy away from Hoover's power-hungry ruthlessness - blackmailing politicians at all levels with muck-raking dossiers - nor speculation of his homosexuality and cross-dressing that adds further ambiguity to one of America's most secretive public figures.
