is a 2012 biographical film by Sacha Gervasi about none other than Alfred Hitchcock
, one of the most prominent film directors of the 20th century, and stars Anthony Hopkins
as the title role and Helen Mirren
as Hitchcock's wife Alma. Hitchcock
revolves around the creation of one of Hitch's most prominent works, Psycho
from its inception as a titillating book he is reading to watching the first theater goers scream in fright at the infamous shower scene.
The film also deals with his relationship with his wife Alma, their struggles with each other and the occasionally petty jealousies that can drive them apart. The film does justice to them as a great couple though and shows their ability to work together to create great works, as well as their ability to work apart and create, not so great works.
