Notes and Editorial Reviews

Based on the book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho by Stephen Rebello, Hitchcock is a biographical comedy-drama that presents a behind-the-scenes look at the film Psycho, which was marred with controversy due to complaints about violence, nudity and other sexual content and claims that a body double was used in Janet Leigh’s place during the shower murder scene. It also focuses on Hitchcock’s relationship with his wife Alma Reville. Hitchcock follows the troubled financing of Psycho, the director’s battles with Hollywood censors and Hitchcock’s desire to prove to his doubters, his wife and himself that he still had an edge. The film stars Academy Award® winners Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren along with Scarlett Read more Johansson,Jessica Biel and AcademyAward® nominee Toni Collette.
