Golden Globe Nominee! Best Actress, Helen Mirren

 

“One of the best movies of 2012. Hitchcock grabs you by the lapels like a suspense classic by Hitch himself - a knockout from start to finish.” – Rex Reed, New York Observer

“An enjoyable pop-art biopic about Alfred Hitchcock and the making of Psycho … an exuberant film about moviemaking.” – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

“Hopkins and Mirren are acting pros in stellar form … Hopkins captures the essence of Hitchcock as artist and con man … Mirren deserves an Oscar nomination.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

 

Good evening, and welcome to the stranger-than-fiction tale behind the creation of a truly Psycho-tic movie masterpiece! Lurking behind Alfred Hitchcock (Anthony Hopkins)—cinema's "Master of Suspense" and the extraordinary film icon known for orchestrating some of the most spine-tingling stories of menace and intrigue audiences have ever seen—was a hidden side: his creatively explosive romance with his steadfast wife and filmmaking collaborator, Alma Reville (Helen Mirren). Now, for the first time, director Sacha Gervasi's Hitchcock lays bare Hitch and Alma’s captivating and complex love affair. But this, of course, is not your standard Hollywood romance … this unique tinseltown love story is told through the sly, shadowy lens of their most daring filmmaking adventure: the creation of the terrifying 1960 thriller Psycho, which would become the director's most controversial and legendary film. When the tumultuous, against-the-odds production was over, nothing about movies would ever be the same, but few realized that it took two to pull it off. Co-starring Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh, James D’Arcy as Anthony Perkins, Jessica Biel as Vera Miles and Toni Collette as devoted Hitchcock assistant Peggy Robertson. (Dir. by Sacha Gervasi, 2012, 98 mins., Rated PG-13, Fox Searchlight) Digital
