''I share my award, as I have my life, with her.''
Hitchcock is a fun movie going experience for fans of the master of suspense, or just fans of film in general. The Pros: Anthony Hopkins, a brilliant actor who portrays Alfred Hitchcock without flaw. Definitely should be an Oscar contender for best actor. The Scenery, from the houses to the 1959 Paramount Pictures studios, the scenery added to the realism of the film. Helen Mirren, a strong actress and very believable in the role of Lady Hitchcock, the struggle between the two and also the love creates an undeniable chemistry between Hopkins and Mirren. The Cons: Scarlett Johansson, I love her as an actress, she wasn't terrible at all, but she was very unconvincing in the role of Janet Leigh, perhaps this was on the filmmakers for not centering the film around the production of Psycho. The Direction, The direction of the movie was great, but jumped around a lot between the love story line and the production of Psycho. Overall a fun and very enjoyable film with great performances. 3/5
