Director Clint Eastwood’s film, featuring a valiant performance from Leonardo DiCaprio (J. Edgar), is a subtle and muted portrayal of the mysterious figure. Molded by his smothering mother (Judi Dench), Hoover ran the FBI from 1935 until his death in 1972. The film is very much interested in Hoover’s intimate relationship with right-hand man (Armie Hammer), perhaps an unacknowledged love affair. Between Eastwood’s objective stance and DiCaprio’s bold acting, you’re in capable hands.
