Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.
J. Edgar Hoover is best known for founding and being the first director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. But there are many things about the man’s personal life (as depicted in this biographically inspired movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio) that had the potential to reflect poorly on the image of the FBI.
Of the many secrets in J. Edgar’s life, Director Clint Eastwood focuses on the man’s homosexual feelings for his assistant, Clyde Tolson (Armie Hammer).
