Teaser Clip Drops for Hitchcock and the Girl
The first teaser for HBO and BBC Two’s upcoming THE GIRL, which explores director Alfred Hitchcock’s obsessive relationship with his THE BIRDS star Tippi Hedren. has dropped. THE GIRL is directed by Julian Jarrold and written by Gwyneth Hughes and stars Sienna Miller as Tippi Hedren, Toby Jones as Hitchcock, and Imelda Staunton as Hitchcock’s wife, Alma.
HBO will be premiering the THE GIRL in the U.S. on October 20, 2012. According to BBC Two, Hedren has cooperated by giving interviews to writer Gwyneth Hughes, while Hitchcock biographer Donald Spoto is attached as a consultant. Check out the plot summary:
Hitchcock was at the height of his fame and creativity when, in 1962, he chose an unknown fashion model to star in his most ambitious film — The Birds. But as he sculpted Hedren into the perfect Hitchcock blonde of his imagination, he became obsessed with the impossible dream of winning the real woman’s love. His failure arguably destroyed both of their careers. In a statement Hughes said: “It’s been the most enormous privilege to talk at length to Tippi Hedren, the last ‘Hitchcock blonde’ in the life of Britain’s most original and successful film director. At the time, in the early 1960s, the American star suffered in silence. But now, at the age of 81, her wisdom and insights have helped me to put her real life ordeal on to the screen.”
