DVD of the Day: Hitchcock

This fairly lighthearted biopic follows Alfred Hitchcock (Anthony Hopkins) and his former boss and wife Alma Reville (Helen Mirren) as they cobble together the money to make the now-classic horror movie Psycho that their studio didn’t want them to make. A tightly-edited and nicely filmed story about Hollywood in a more staid era just before the Sixties exploded into social and political unrest. Also featuring Scarlett Johansson as actress Janet Leigh and (ulp) Jessica Biel as Vera Miles.
