Instead of announcing that they don't care about the poor or accusing President Obama of setting off class warfare -- Americans need to hear that someone in power, or who wants to be in power, feels their pain.
J.Edgar, the movie, is more than just a mere contrived biopic. There is something transcendent about it, something that can enhance our understanding about America and the people who wield power over our lives.
The acting in J Edgar is okay with DiCaprio trying to fill in the gaps that surrounded Hoover's history. But an actor can only do so much with a weak script and Dustin Lance Black's script is very weak.
