English director Alfred Hitchcock, a.k.a. The Master of Suspense, is revered as one of the greatest creative minds in the history of cinema. Known for his psychological thrillers, Hitchcocks leading ladies were cool, beautiful and preferably blonde. Onesuch actress was Tippi Hedren, an unknown fashion model given her big break when Hitchcocks wife saw her on a TV commercial. Brought to Universal Studios, Hedren was shocked when the director, at the peak of his career, quickly cast her to star in his next feature, 1963s The Birds. Little did Hedren know that as ambitious and terrifying as the production would be to shoot, the most daunting aspect of the film ended up coming from behind the camera. Starring Toby Jones as Hitchcock and Sienna Miller as Hedren, The Girl tells the story of the directors obsessive relationship with his leading lady during the making of The Birds and Marnie. As he attempted to sculpt Hedren into the perfect blonde of his imagination, Hitchcock became obsessed with the impossible dream of winning the real womans love. Her rejection of his misguided attempts only added to his obsession, putting both their careers and personal lives in jeopardy. The Girl is a complex tale of power, obsession, and the price exacted for stardom.
