Hollywood loves a good hit of nostalgia and after the recent success of My Week With Marilyn it’s time to take a look behind the shower curtain with Hitchcock.
Hitchcock tells the story of the famous director Alfred Hitchcock (Anthony Hopkins) and the making of psycho with a focus on his relationship with his wife, Alma Reville (Helen Mirren).
The film is based on the book titled – surprise, surprise – Alfred Hitchcock and the Making Of Psycho.
The first trailer has appeared online and the first impression is good. It looks to have captured the struggle it took to get Psycho made as well as grounding the saga in the relationship between Hitchcock and Reville. A dry British sense of humour permeates throughout as well as hinting at the darker side of Hitchcock when it came to his interest in leading ladies.
