this wonderously made, wimsical drama about one of history's greatest directors is an all out blast for hardcore film buffs. sure, the relationship subplot will confuse them a bit, this biopic is a great, Oscar worthy treat that is OK for younger kids. this wimsical, heartwarming true story has little in the way of violence, sex, or drugs. there are some startling images of dead bodies and wounds, and one guy gets hit in the head with a shovel. during the showing of Psycho, you can hear the audience scream in terror. there is one use of dam*. Hitchcock smokes cigars.
