Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Nov 25th at 5:30 for Hitchcock at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Brian F. wearing a red and grey hoodie in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Lurking behind Alfred Hitchcock (Anthony Hopkins)-cinema’s “master of suspense” and the extraordinary film icon known for orchestrating some of the most intense experiences of menace and intrigue audiences have ever seen-was a hidden side: his creatively explosive romance with his steadfast wife and filmmaking collaborator, Alma Reville (Helen Mirren). Now, for the first time, director Sacha Gervasi’s Hitchcock lays bare their captivating and complex love story. It does so through the sly, shadowy lens of their most daring filmmaking adventure: the making of the spine-tingling 1960 thriller Psycho, which would become the director’s most controversial and legendary film. When the tumultuous, against-the-odds production was over, nothing about movies would ever be the same, but few realized that it took two to pull it off. Co-starring Scarlett Johansson, Toni Collette, Danny Huston and Jessica Biel. Co-written by John J. McLaughlin, co-screenwriter of Black Swan.
