J. Edgar Poster

During his lifetime, J. Edgar Hoover would rise to be the most powerful man in America. As head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for nearly 50 years, he would stop at nothing to protect his country. Through eight presidents and three wars, Hoover waged battle against threats both real and perceived, often bending the rules to keep his countrymen safe. His methods were at once ruthless and heroic, with the admiration of the world his most coveted, if ever elusive, prize.

Hoover was a man who placed great value on secrets-particularly those of others-and was not afraid to use that information to exert authority over the leading figures in the nation. Understanding that knowledge is power and fear poses opportunity, he used both to gain unprecedented influence and to build a reputation that was both formidable and untouchable.

He was as guarded in his private life as he was in his public one, allowing only a small and protective inner circle into his confidence. His closest colleague, Clyde Tolson, was also his constant companion. His secretary, Helen Gandy, who was perhaps most privy to Hoover's designs, remained loyal to the end...and beyond. Only Hoover's mother, who served as his inspiration and his conscience, would leave him, her passing truly crushing to the son who forever sought her love and approval.

As seen through the eyes of Hoover himself, J. Edgar explores the personal and public life and relationships of a man who could distort the truth as easily as he upheld it during a life devoted to his own idea of justice, often swayed by the darker side of power.

Oscar® winner Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby) directed the film from a screenplay by Oscar® winner Dustin Lance Black (Milk).

Academy Award® nominee Leonardo DiCaprio stars in the title role. J. Edgar also stars Academy Award® nominee Naomi Watts as Helen Gandy, Hoover's longtime secretary; Armie Hammer as Hoover's protégé Clyde Tolson; Josh Lucas as the legendary aviator Charles Lindbergh, whose son's kidnapping changes the public profile of the F.B.I.; and Oscar® winner Judi Dench as Hoover's over-protective mother, Annie Hoover.

J. Edgar was produced by Clint Eastwood, Oscar® winner Brian Grazer and Oscar® nominee Robert Lorenz, with Tim Moore and Erica Huggins serving as executive producers.

A Warner Bros. Pictures presentation, J. Edgar was produced under the banners of Imagine Entertainment and Malpaso. It will be released in limited markets on Wednesday, November 09, 2011 and expand to a wide release on Friday, November 11, 2011. The film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

    The fascinating story. I can not wait to see it on screen. this award is important to, because I have many fond years playing Leonardo DiCaprio, I think it decent to play in the film J. Edgar. because this film is not easy to convey the spirit of those times and relive the emotions experienced by the protagonist. I think the movie will be successful ... but the gift deserves a lot of people for whom this is important

    When I was a little girl I went everywhere with my Dad,a mechanic.Grew up playing around junk yards and in the truck passenger side waiting for Dad to say"Right turn Clyde",which of course shocked men that a little girl hit them,but worse was getting a bloody nose from a 6year old who's father wouldn't quit laughing.Clint Eastwood doesn't know it, but he did the impossible,he helped make a redneck's neck redder and a hillbillies right hook harder! So thx 4 the swing! I would love to win,make more memories with Dad and my girls.

    I love Clint's work, but I think it is important to learn about American history and the select few men who have held the office of the presidency. I can use the prize pack to start discussions and promote people to watch the movie.
