Hitchcock (2012)

Directed by
Sacha Gervasi

With the critics implying he might call cut on an illustrious career, legendary director Alfred Hitchcock decides to go in search of a project that will reinvigorate his image and his passion for film. A grisly new novel based on the Ed Gein murders might just be it, but not many are convinced that even the great Hitch has the potential to turn Psycho into a palatable mainstream hit.

With the encouragement of his wife Alma (Helen Mirren), Alfred decides to finance the film himself and cast Janet Leigh (Scarlett Johansson) in the (apparently) starring role. But when Alma develops a close working relationship with writer Whitfield Cook (Danny Huston), the film-maker's jealousy and the pressures of the project send his twisted psyche into overdrive.

With top performances from Hopkins and a BAFTA-nominated Mirren, Hitchcock offers an entertaining look inside one of cinema's most iconic masterpieces and the mind of its creator.
