About the Movie
Hitchcock creates a masterful psychological thriller about a compulsive liar and thief (Tippi Hedren), who winds up marrying the very man (Sean Connery) she attempts to rob. When a terrible accident pushes her over the edge, her husband struggles to help her face her demons as the plot races to an inescapable conclusion.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: At once a fascinating study of a sexual relationship and the master's most disappointing film in years.
Fresh: Psychologically resonant, visually transcendent ...
Fresh: Universally despised on its first release, Marnie remains one of Alfred Hitchcock's greatest and darkest achievements.
Fresh: Hitchcock was criticised for bring shallow psychology into the film (Hedren's character is afraid of the colour red) but some of their exchanges - the film was based on a novel by Winston Graham - are sharp and droll.
Too too underrated
Very misunderstood, thankfully rescued by Robin Wood. Watch it, be mesmerized by it.
One of Hitchcock's best!
This is a great one that shouldn't be missed!
Marnie (3.5 mics)
Following the hype and commercialized success of The Birds, Hitchcock began production on Marnie immediately following The Birds public release into theatures. Although halted a few years prior to the production of 1963's The Birds, Marnie has been a project that Hitchcock always had an interest in adapting to the screen. Marnie, inevidably has a few notable flaws regarding it's adapted screenplay yet essentially brings out the best in Sean Connery's performance and Tippi Hendren's as well. Marnie most evidently involves a great deal of complexities regarding the psychology of Tippi Hendren's character (Marnie), and as the film's emotional story unfolds it essentially evolves into an emotional story involving the horrors of an isolated childhood and a somewhat graphic incident. As like the majority of Alfred Hitchcock's films are, this ranks to be one of the most visually optimistic films I've seen of his; yet every great film has a story worth telling this story tends to fall short.
