It's one of the most talked about films this year, and today (November 11) "J. Edgar" has made its long-awaited theatrical debut.

The biopic sees Leonardo DiCaprio in the starring role as J. Edgar Hoover, the man responsible for creating the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Detailing the life of Hoover, the movie centers on his character as “the face of law enforcement in America for almost 50 years. Hoover was feared and admired, reviled and revered. But behind closed doors, he held secrets that would have destroyed his image, his career, and his life.”

Helmed by Hollywood great Clint Eastwood, the film also stars Josh Lucas, Judi Dench, Naomi Watts, and Ed Westwick.
