Like The Help (2011) film?

Throughout his life, John Edgar Hoover rose to power to become the most powerful man in America. As head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, he stopped at nothing to protect his country. Having survived eight presidents and three wars, Hoover battled threats, both real and far-fetched, often breaking the rules to keep his fellow citizens out of harm's way. He was ruthless and a hero, both at the same time; the world admired him, which was his most coveted, though not tangible, reward.

"J. Edgar" through the eyes of Hoover himself shows us his private and public life and relations with those around him of a man who might as well have distorted the truth as he defended it during a lifetime devoted to embodying his own idea of justice, often influenced by the dark side of power.
