Synopsis

The behind-the-scenes story of legendary British suspense director Alfred Hitchcock's influential hit, Psycho, is fictionalised in this well-acted drama. Centred on the relationship between Hitch and his long-suffering wife and professional collaborator Alma Reville during the 1959 shoot, it's a playful feature that's more about entertainment than facts. A physically transformed Anthony Hopkins revels in his colourful title role as the obsessive Hitchcock, who risks his glowing reputation, his house and marriage to personally finance and film the now classic horror project that was shockingly extreme for its time. Movie buffs will love the recreation of 1950s Hollywood, while the peeks into Hitchcock's creative process are fascinating.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
