He made her his star and his darkest obssesion. Simple as that! We have three new posters for HBO’s upcoming movie simply titled The Girl, which is set to air this month! So, consider this as a little reminder and don’t forget to check it out on October 20th, 2012. The movie will give us a darker look at Alfred Hitchcock‘s relationship with actress Tippi Hedren, and as you already know – Toby Jones and Sienna Miller will lead us through that weird obssesion!
In case you’re not so familiar with The Girl plot, I will remind you that everything starts in 1962, when the legendary director chose an unknown fashion model to star in his most ambitious film – The Birds.
But as he sculpted Tippi 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.
Written by Gwyneth Hughes, this movie is directed by Julian Jarrold and, beside Jones and Miller it also stars Imelda Staunton, Penelope Wilton, Sean Cameron Michael and Candice D’Arcy.
