The movie is set in the 1920s and based on the life of Howard Hughes (movie maker and the man behind Hughes Aircraft). It starts off a little slow and confusing, then picks up and keeps you very engaged to the very end. The dialogues, especially in the early part of the movie are sometimes a little difficult to follow. The Senate hearing scenes towards the end are superbly dramatized with the right “masala”. Overall, an excellent film.
Leornardo DiCaprio in the lead role is very impressive. A super performance, no doubt. I believe he also co-produced the movie. Smart move. See this movie if you get a chance.
If you plan see the movie, give this background on Howard Hughes a quick read.
