After teasing us last month with a 30 second trailer, HBO have now released a full trailer for The Girl. The Alfred Hitchcock drama focuses on the relationship between the master of suspense and actress Tippi Hedren, with whom he became infatuated during her filming of The Birds and Marnie. Hitchcock famously used real birds to attack Hedren during filming, despite assuring her he would use mechanical models. Hedren recently attended a screening of the television movie and described it as a truthful account of a ‘horrible and frightening experience’.
The Girl stars the fantastic Toby Jones (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy) and Sienna Miller (The Edge Of Love). The pair are joined by Imelda Staunton, Penelope Wilton, Candice D’Arcy, Sean Cameron Michael and Kate Tilley. Directed by Julian Jarrold (Red Riding), The Girl will premiere on HBO this October and is expected to air on BBC Two later this year. »

Alfred Hitchcock is one of the most famous directors in film history, having directed numerous classics such as Psycho and Strangers on a Train, and the impact of his works can be felt even today, as his feature Vertigo recently dethroned Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane at the top of the popular Sight & Sound Best Films list. But the private life of Hitchcock is also a fascinating subject, particularly his tumultuous relationship with actress Tippi Hedren. The latter is the focus of a Hitchcock-based tv movie by HBO and BBC, titled The Girl, which sees Toby Jones play the legendary director, with Sienna Miller taking on the part of Tippi Hedren, and Imelda Staunton, Penelope Wilton, Kate Tilley, and Adrian Galley rounding out the cast.

Toby Jones as Alfred Hitchcock, Sienna Miller as Tippi Hedren, The Girl The Girl is a BBC biopic about Alfred Hitchcock's Svengali-like relationship with Tippi Hedren, the star of the director's seminal The Birds (1963) and the box-office and critical flop Marnie (1964). Toby Jones, next to be seen in The Hunger Games and Snow White and the Huntsman, plays Hitchcock, while Stardust / Factory Girl's Sienna Miller (also known as one of dozens of phone-hacking victims of Rupert Murdoch's tabloid The News of the World) plays Hedren.
