Hitchcock, 2012.

Directed by Sacha Gervasi.

Starring Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Biel, James D'Arcy, Ralph Macchio, Michael Stuhlbarg, Danny Huston and Toni Collette.

Synopsis:

The story of Alfred Hitchcock's struggles to make and distribute Psycho is told as the backdrop to a love story between Hitch and his wife Alma Reville.

Hitchcock is not a biopic of the Master of Suspense, but rather a look at the events post North by Northwest as Alfred Hitchcock worked on getting Psycho funded and filmed. The film really deals with the relationship between 'Hitch' and his wife Alma, and the struggles that they endure as a married couple in the limelight.

Unlike the majority of the Hitch's films Hitchcock itself is not a brilliant film. In fact, parts of it left me wondering what the reason for their inclusion were, and in some cases I was left annoyed.
