Went to movie thinking I would just be mildly entertained and was greatly surprised. The acting was exceptional as I expected with Hopkins and Mirren, but he movie was riveting from beginning to end. Scarlett Johansson was more beautiful and charming than I have ever seen. Helen Mirren's scene when she confronted Hitchcock was masterful and worthy of an Oscar nod. The ending was especially heartwarming since it was true.
