Sacha Gervasi (Anvil! The Story of Anvil) explores the strained marriage of Alfred Hitchock and his wife during the filming of the risky Psycho in 1959 in Hitchock. Anthony Hopkins plays the title character, and absolutely nails it, while Helen Mirren plays his wife. Scarlett Johannson gets a knife in the shower as Janet Leigh, while Jessica Biel, Michael Stuhlbarg, Toni Collete, and RALPH MACHIO round out the rest of the cast.

More than anything, it looks like an absolute gas to watch, more fun than dramatic.
