Film Preview: J. Edgar

The new film explores the homosexual secrets of one of U.S. history's most controversial men

Have no doubt – J. Edgar is a very gay movie. Not only does it explore the secret life of J. Edgar Hoover, the country’s first director of the FBI, but it considers how his closeted angst may have inspired his most secretive, controversial assaults against those he considered dissenters. The film, directed by Clint Eastwood, was written by Dustin Lance Black, the openly gay screenwriter who also penned Milk for which Sean Penn won an Oscar.
