Box-office superstar Leonardo DiCaprio (Inception, The Departed) joins forces with Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Clint Eastwood (Gran Torino, Million Dollar Baby, Unforgiven) in this unyielding biopic that explores the public and private life of one of the most powerful, controversial and enigmatic figures of the 20th century. As the face of law enforcement in America for almost fifty years, J. Edgar Hoover was feared and admired, reviled and revered. But behind closed doors, he held secrets that would have destroyed his image, his career and his life. With a career steeped in scandal and a controversial private life,the legendary director of the FBI retained his post as keeper of the country's secrets (and many of his own) until his death in 1972.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Leonardo DiCaprio gives a predictably powerhouse performance, but J. Edgar stumbles in all other departments with cheesy makeup, poor lighting, confusing narrative, and humdrum storytelling.
