Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren star in Hitchcock, a biopic about the legendary director that focuses largely on the time surrounding the production and release of Psycho. The film was a bit hobbled in pre-production when denied permission to show or copy footage from Psycho, or to use the iconic Bates Hotel, so the main focus of the film ends up being the relationship between Hitchcock (Hopkins) and his wife, Alma Reville (Mirren). This may be the film’s saving grace. Hopkins and Mirren nail their respective roles. Still, much of this storyline is speculative, so audiences shouldn’t take what they see as factual.
