Starring Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel.
A Fox Searchlight Release
MPAA Theatrical Rating: PG-13
The making of PSYCHO told through the marriage of Alfred Hitchcock and his wife, Alma Reville. A fun and forgettable piece of amiable fluff, HITCHCOCK is pitch perfect and expertly cast, even if Hopkins is a bit puffy in his prosthetics. Mirren gives an engaging performance as Hitchcock's long suffering wife; she's clearly having a blast with the role. In fact, everyone seems to be having a good time on this picture, from the honeywagon drivers to the director, imbuing the film with an infectious, sunny disposition. The kind of picture that once it hits cable, you'll find yourself stumbling into the middle and getting caught up in it all over again. With Toni Collette, Danny Huston, Ralph Macchio, Kurtwood Smith, James D'Arcy and Michael Wincott as Ed Gein.- EH
