He was the Master of Suspense, a legendary director whose films thrilled, terrified and wowed audiences for decades. But to actress Tippi Hedren, the true terror of Alfred Hitchcock shockingly came from the man himself. Mirroring some of Hitchcock's own cinematic classics, this real-life tale of obsession chronicles the director's grooming of Hedren into a leading lady and prototypical 'Hitchcock blonde'--and his growing passion for her personally--as they filmed 'The Birds' in 1963 and 'Marnie' in 1964. Toby Jones and Sienna Miller star as Hitchcock and Hedren whose careers and lives both suffered as a result. Imelda Staunton co-stars as Hitchcock's wife Alma; also with Carl Beukes and Penelope Wilton. Directed by Julian Jarrold; screenplay by Gwyneth Hughes, based on the book 'Spellbound by Beauty' by Donald Spoto.
