THE GIRL, in question, is none other than the fabulous Tippi Hedren and the trials and heartaches that she went through before, during and after the making of both THE BIRDS and MARNIE under the controlling hands of director Alfred Hitchcock. THE GIRL focuses on the obsessive and compulsive behavors ignited by Hitchcock towards Hedren. Remember that this is taking place in the mid 1950s, when such a scandal would destroy two flurishing careers if the word ever got out. Hedren, always the strong and independent woman, took a stand against Hitchcock and basically ended her professional (and possible personal) relationship with Hitchock.

The film, as a whole, is both entertaining and informative...considering that many were not aware of the pairing. Great details were placed on wardrobe, set designing and other visuals to capture the 50s and the feeling of Hitchcock's world. Toby Jones (HUNGER GAMES, CAPTAIN AMERICA) plays Sir Alfred Hitchcock with great believability! YOU forget that it's Jones you are watching and the viewer will accept that we are actually watching "Hitch" come to life throughout the development of the story. Jones captures the stout Hitchcock stand, appearance and accent wonderfully. Sienna Miller (G.I. JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA) plays Tippi with great realism. She embodies strength and was able to take the stand necessary to bring down the studio giant that was Hitchcock. Hitch is portrayed as a man who always got his way, which is why he feels that Tippi WOULD fall head over heals the man.

The flow of film goes from exciting to stale at some points, but the drama keeps the film interesting as well as the performances by our lead actors. In fact, it is the actors that keeps the audience's attention and allows you to stay til the end of the final act.

THE GIRL is historical and entertaining. It allows both fans and novices to see a side of Hitch that was never revealed to the public. It also allows Tippi the opportunity to voice what has been her personal secret for all those years since.
