iVillage: Holiday Movies 2012

5 of 11


Release Date: Nov. 23

The Plot: With the support of his patient wife (Helen Mirren), aging director Alfred Hitchcock (Anthony Hopkins) stirs controversy by making "Psycho," a game-changing horror film that pushes the boundaries of big-screen violence and kills off its leading lady, Janet Leigh (Scarlett Johansson), just 30 minutes into its story. Jessica Biel stars as Vera Miles, the actress who plays the movie’s heroine.

The Buzz: Between Hitchcock and HBO’s "The Girl" (about the making of "The Birds"), Hollywood has suddenly gotten sentimental about Hitchcock. And Hopkins' spot-on portrayal of the curmudgeonly film icon is already garnering praise from online cinephiles. "Hitchcock’s so enigmatic in one sense," says Hitchcock’s director, Sacha Gervasi ("Anvil") told Entertainment Weekly. "Someone who portrays zero emotion. We didn’t really know emotionally that much about Hitchcock, and suddenly you have this whole world that opens up when Anthony Hopkins plays the role. It’s extraordinary."
