This early-1900s biopic depicts the life of Howard Hughes, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, a film producer and aviation mogul. Hughes had an important film career but his interest in aviation led him to purchase part of an airline. The film centers in on 1927-1947 in Hughes’s life, when he became fixated with aviation but also struggled deeply with his obsessive-compulsive disorder. It also charts his romances with famed actresses like Katherine Hepburn and Ava Gardner. Sometimes the best biopics are ones about people that exist outside the fringe of “wildly famous people” and just have a good story to tell!
