It’s funny to think that director Clint Eastwood is probably the wink link in this movie. Eastwood’s always been a bit hit-or-miss for me — mostly miss if I’m being honest — but the Academy loves him, historical dramas and Leo DiCaprio. Which means this is real Oscar bait. Still, it looks great, the cast is incredible and it was written by Dustin Lance Black.
Just surprised the story is going for the full historical scope of J. Edgar Hoover’s life. Generally that’s a recipe for disaster in biopics. Hits theaters on Nov. 9.
