‘The Girl’ A Creepy Depiction Of How Hitchcock Tortured Actress For Not Sleeping With Him

Last month, “The Birds” star Tippi Hedren came forward about the psychological torture director Alfred Hitchcock put her through for refusing to sleep with him during the filming of the thriller, and the manipulation shows in the trailer for new HBO movie, “The Girl,” an onscreen adaptation of Hedren’s awful experiences.
Hedren, who is portrayed by Sienna Miller, said the obsessive, creepy Hitchcock tried to destroy her career and make her uncomfortable at work after she denied his advances. He probably couldn’t get away with that now, but things were different in the 60s, when he created “The Birds.” “The Girl,” which is Hedren’s tell-all on working with the famous horror director, includes scenes of the British man placing the vulnerable woman in dangerous situations seemingly as punishment for rejecting him. It’s quite creepy, so if you thought Hitchcock’s movies were terrifying, you’re in for some sleepless nights after watching this one.
