A story of love and making a movie about a homicidal maniac.
There's probably very few out there that don't consider Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho one of the greatest movies of all-time, but the making of it was less than smooth and tested the marriage between the legendary director and his wife Alma Reville. Their love story is the backbone of the upcoming biopic Hitchcock. which details the difficulties involved in getting Psycho to the big screen and how Alma (played by Helen Mirren) was a continual source of strength and a sounding board for Hitchcock (played by Anthony Hopkins).
"I think Alma accepts Hitch for exactly who he is and knows his idiosyncrasies and his crazy predilections," director Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil) recently explained to EW. "She allows him to have his obsessions and I think our movie is about a point where they sort of escalate. Their marriage is absolutely touched off by his increasing obsessions with these women, but they were ultimately fantasy relationships. Hitch lived in this world of fantasy; to him it was more real than real life. And I think Alma was able to kind of, in this film at least, smash it down a little bit."Take a stab at the latest Trailers
