I saw 'Hitchcock' last night and really really liked it. Helen Mirren is tremendous. She always is, but I liked her better than ever in this movie. I had an idea after listening to Tippi Hedren talk (see earlier post) that Alma, Hitchcock's wife, was awful, but Helen Mirren showed another side to the woman. That's not to say that Alma's way of handling, or not handling, her odd husband's infatuation with elegant blondes, was  beneficial to the target of his lustful eyes. Helen Mirren's portrayal could do nothing but justice to the character  because she made her into someone very real and very special. Scarlett Johannson was a beautiful Janet Leigh. The movie has lightness to it and is very well done!!!
