HBO’s original movie “The Girl” stars Sienna Miller as Tippi Hedren, the star of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds”. The film explores the apparently every complex relationship between the director and his actress, and if these first two teaser trailers for the film are any indication, there were some freaky deaky stuff going on between the two.
Alfred Hitchcock (Toby Jones) 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 Tippi Hedren (Sienna Miller) 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.
Starring Sienna Miller, Toby Jones, Imelda Staunton, Penelope Wilton, Candice D’Arcy, and directed by Julian Jarrold.
“The Girl” premieres on HBO Saturday, October 20th.
