In the wake of his 1959 hit "North by Northwest," Alfred Hitchcock sought a new challenge. He found it in the text of a lurid pulp novel about a murdering, mother-obsessed maniac...and "Psycho" was born. Anthony Hopkins stars as the legendary "Master of Suspense" in this "absorbing and aptly droll" (Hollywood Reporter) chronicle of his fight to bring the film to the screen.
Helen Mirren co-stars as Hitch's loyal wife and aide Alma with Scarlett Johansson as actress Janet Leigh. Directed by Sacha Gervasi; screenplay by John J. McLaughlin, based on the book "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho" by Stephen Rebello.
