The forthcoming HBO movie captures the emotional abuse suffered by actress Tippi Hedren during the filming of Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Bird'.
HBO has finally premiered the first full trailer of "The Girl (2012)" after previewing it in some teasers. The video offers a look at the beginning of the partnership between Sienna Miller's Tippi Hedren and Toby Jones' Alfred Hitchcock, who starts freaking her out once they begin working together.
Directed by Julian Jarrold and written by Gwyneth Hughes, the show focuses on the iconic director's obsessive relationship with his leading lady Hedren during the making of "The Birds" and "Marnie". The 82-year-old actress claimed in 2011 that Hitchcock effectively stunted her career because she refused his sexual advances.
HBO will debut "The Girl" on Saturday, October 20. In addition to Miller and Jones, the TV movie has the likes of Penelope Wilton, Imelda Staunton, Sean Cameron Michael and Candice D'Arcy lining up in the cast ensemble.
