ELLE reviews Hitchcock

Scarlett Johansson stars

Scarlett Johansson makes a gorgeous, glamorous Janet Leigh in Hitchcock, a light-hearted look at the making of Psycho.

It¹s the late 50s and director Alfred Hitchcock (Anthony Hopkins) is shocking the studios by branching out into horror movies.

It¹s make or break for his career ­ and possibly star Janet¹s too.

Meanwhile Hitch¹s supportive wife Alma (Helen Mirren) indulges in a flirtatious friendship with charmer Whitfield Cook (Danny Huston) and actress Vera Miles (Jessica Biel) sashays in for a supporting role in Psycho.
