In 1959, Alfred Hitchcock and his wife, Alma Reville, are at the top of their creative game as filmmakers amid disquieting insinuations about it being time to retire. To recapture his youth's artistic daring, Alfred decides his next film will adapt the lurid horror novel, Psycho (1960), over everyone's misgivings. Unfortunately, as Alfred self-finances and labors on this film, Alma finally loses patience with his roving eye and controlling habits with his actresses. When an ambitious friend lures her to collaborate on a work of their own, the resulting marital tension colors Alfred's work even as the novel's inspiration haunts his dreams. Written by

Alfred Hitchcock biographer, Patrick McGilligan, noted several fictions created by the movie for artistic reasons. These included that in real-life: Hitchcock never re-mortgaged his house to help finance Psycho (1960)'s production; Hitchcock's wife Alma Reville never directed any scenes in the movie; Hitchcock's marriage was nowhere near as tumultuous as depicted; Hitchcock never got involved during the production of the shower scene, and certainly never scared Janet Leigh.

At two occasions we see the famous Bates Mansion in the background, facing the right side of the house, opposite of how it appears in Psycho. Originally the house was constructed with only 2 walls - the left and front facade. See more »

The odds were against it, let's face it. Then after that TV film about the obsession of Hitch for Tippi Hedren, what was it called? something like "The Girl" Brrrr. I thought, what a pity. But then, I went to see it and I was not merely thoroughly entertained but delighted. Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren make a formidable pair. Mirren, in spite of her glamour, I've never seen Alma Reville, as glamorous, Mirren truly captures the essence of the woman and makes that marriage not just feasible but ideal in so many ways. The script, smart and witty and gives a glimpse into what might have really happened. Janet Leigh (a terrific Scarlett Johansson)thanking Hitch and kissing him on the cheek. Look at Hitch/Hopkins's face when that happens. A child. I believed it. So, considering the odds against it, a triumph.
