I thought the acting was good. Anthony Hopkins did a good job and Helen Mirren complimented him well as Hitchcock's wife. The movie tells the story of Psycho and how Hitchcock had to battle with Paramount Pictures and censors at the MPAA to get it made - in addition to the shower scene this was the first film to show a flushing toilet.
Interesting that I have never seen Psycho but had no trouble following the story - funny how that iconic shower scene sound effects were influenced by his wife. Anyhow, I liked the movie and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★★.
