  • Set in classic Hollywood in the 1950s, HITCHCOCK is the behind-the-scenes story of the famous director's personal life and his love affair with his wife and partner,
    Alma Reville. Told against the backdrop of the making of the director's seminal masterpiece, PSYCHO, Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren play Hitchcock and his wife, and Scarlett Johansson plays Janet Leigh. The film is directed by Sacha Gervasi (ANVIL: THE STORY OF ANVIL) and also stars Jessica Biel, Toni Collette, Danny Huston, Michael Stuhlbarg and James D'Arcy. Together Hitch and Alma challenged the studio and risked everything to make the film, gambling their home and their reputations. What begins merely as an ambitious film project eventually tests the limits of their marriage, yet with groundbreaking new editing, sound and advertising, the two overcome the odds and create one of cinema's enduring masterpieces.
