Early Reviews: HBO's 'The Girl' Premieres at the Hampton Film Festival

HBO premiered their Hitchcock vs. Hedren flick, "The Girl" at the Hamptons International Film Festival. Early reviews hint that while the film entertains, it doesn't quite satisfy in terms of character development. Toby Jones' portrayal of Alfred Hitchcock is praised across the board, while critics say that Sienna Miller is passable, but not notable. The film avoids the horror tropes that the master of suspense was known for, instead aiming to reveal the psychological underpinnings of the main characters.
