J. Edgar

The Most Powerful Man in the World
  • Now where did she go?

Clint Eastwood's latest biopic takes a look at the life of J. Edgar Hoover, who built and ran the FBI for 50 years. A complex individual, he amassed secret dossiers on everyone of note, and used this to secure his position and influence as presidents came and went. His public persona, however, was very different to what happened behind closed doors.
