Members Only Screening: Hitchcock
Directors weren’t typically household names during the Golden Age of Hollywood when the star system reigned supreme. But Alfred Hitchcock was never typical. Reaching a creative peak in the late 1950s with The Wrong Man, Vertigo, and North By Northwest, the master of suspense turned his attention to a decidedly darker, riskier project with his next film. Sacha Gervasi’s Hitchcock follows the riotous behind-the-scenes rigmaroles as Hitchcock worked on what would become his signature motion picture: Psycho. Gervasi, wrote the screenplay for The Terminal and directed Anvil: The Story of Anvil, is no stranger to portraying the determined, endearing outsider. And outsiders are rarely as endearing and determined as the rotund, mordantly witty Hitchcock, indelibly brought back to life by Sir Anthony Hopkins. Dame Helen Mirren stars as Alma Reville, Hitchcock’s co-conspirator, confidante, and wife. Scarlett Johansson plays Janet Leigh, Psycho’s star.
