Director Sacha Gervasi adapts Stephen Rebello's book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho to explore the relationship between the legendary British director (Anthony Hopkins) and his wife Alma Reville (Helen Mirren), who played a crucial behind-the-scenes role in the making of her husband's terrifying 1960 classic Psycho. Scarlett Johansson co-stars as Janet Leigh and James D'Arcy portrays Anthony Perkins in a film also featuring Jessica Biel, Danny Huston, Toni Collette, and Ralph Macchio. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
April 24, 2013..........................Real nice history about Alfred Hitchcock. Never really knew that Alfred Hitchcocks wife was the one that saved Psycho. Alfred Hitchcock made six more movies after Psycho. Great movie Anthony Hopkins did a great job along with the other actors.
This was a great movie that was interesting to watch. Hopkins, Mirren, and the rest of the cast did a nice job. I am glad it was a PG-13 movie. Once movies get to the R rating, they start to focus on the shock factor which overrides the actual story. BTW: The 1958 Cadillac they drove in the movie was a beauty.
With Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren starring in a movie,how could it possibly be bad? Absolutely brilliant ,the two best actors ever to grace a big screen. I have always been a Hitchcock fan and this film was a great portrayal of one of his greatest movies he ever made!
Anthony Hopkins Does A Great Acting Job,Believable As Hitchcock All The Rest As Well. But I Find The Movie Quite Boring Its Very Slow Paced,Feels Like Watching A Long Soap Opera. But Its Essential To Watch It All To Develop The Whole Feel Or Story Of HitchCock.
I wish it focused more on the making of Psycho and less on the sometimes troubled relationship between Alfred and Alma. But still, well done film about movie history and all the actors did a great job, especially the lead two.
A great story of the making of the Hitchcock Psycho movie. Anthony Hopkins was excellent in the part sounded so much like Hitchcock's voice. Helen Mirren, such an excellent actress was great in her part. I recommend this movie.
