About the Movie

Oscar® Winners Anthony Hopkins (Actor, The Silence of the Lambs, 1991) and Helen Mirren (Actress, The Queen, 2006) are spellbinding in this provocative story about the making of one of cinema’s most iconic films. Plagued by both a reckless ego and nagging self-doubt, Hollywood legend Alfred Hitchcock (Hopkins) becomes obsessed with a grisly murder story that the studios won’t back. Determined, he risks his reputation, his home and even the love of his wife Alma (Mirren), as he sets out to make the film. Ultimately, Hitch wins Alma over, and the two collaborate to create an enduring masterpiece – Psycho.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: An overly literal idea of the brilliant director, but an entertaining visit to the set of a horror classic. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Dec 6, 2012

Fresh: It's tough work giving good face to an iconic role, yet Johansson manages to show Leigh as a thoughtful professional aware of the interpersonal booby-traps set by her director for his leading ladies. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Nov 30, 2012

Fresh: Filmed with lots of style and a macabre sense of humor the master himself would have enjoyed. – Richard Roeper, Richard, Dec 4, 2012

Rotten: There are a multitude of sordidly fascinating directions a biopic on Alfred Hitchcock could take. So, when Sacha Gervasi's flat and frothy Hitchcock concludes, it's inevitably frustrating to find this film takes such a conventional path. – Richard Haridy, Quickflix, Nov 25, 2013

Great performances from Helen Mirren and Anthony Hopkins, but what a boring film! Such a lifeless story that seems to go nowhere. I was glad when it was over. Not recommended.

Hitchcock a Thrilling Film

This is an excellent film with depth, artistry and eloquence. Hopkins portrays a noble but flawed hero and Mirren a woman of substance and intelligence. Too many films wrongly depict women of this period and before as the adoring or victimized spouse (presumably the women they decide to portray themselves to the public at large) instead of the full-blooded, rich and deeply complex human beings that have, do and will continue to exist.
