Sienna Miller Applauded For Standout Performance As Tippi Hedren in 'The Girl'

Sienna Miller has received mass praise for her role as 60's screen siren Tippi Hedren in the HBO special 'The Girl'.

'The Girl' will air on HBO this coming Saturday (Oct 20) and will follow the off-screen terrors that often plagued Hedren during her time working under Alfred Hitchchock. As well as Miller, the mini-movie also stars Toby Jones as the acclaimed directed Hitchcock and Imelda Staunton as his wife Alma Hitchcock.

The show has already been given the thumbs up by a handful of critics that have been given a first look at the new project, commending the impressive performances of the cast and the detailed portrayal of the difficult relationship that Hedren had to endure with Hitchcock.

2012 and 2013 are proving to be the years of Hitchcock revivalism, with the HBO mini-movie being the first of two releases looking at life behind the lens of the much-celebrated director. In February next year, Hitchcock will be released in cinemas with an even more impressive line-up following Hitchcock and co behind the scenes on the film Psycho. Starring Oscar-winning pair Anthony Hopkins and Helen Mirren as husband and wife pair Alfred and Alma, the film will follow the love affair between the two during the filming of one of Hitchcock's most famous films. The film will also star Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel as the female leads in the 1959 film.
