Marnie is a 1964 psychological thriller directed by Alfred Hitchcock, starring Tippi Hedren as the mysterious and troubled titular character, Sean Connery as her love interest, Mark Rutland, and Martin Gabel as Mr. Strutt, Marnie's boss. The film follows Marnie, a beautiful but mysterious woman with a troubled past who seems determined to avoid emotional attachment at all costs. She moves from job to job, and often employs different identities, putting on different guises to hide her true self.

Early on in the film, Marnie is caught in the act of stealing money from her employer. She is confronted by Mark Rutland, who is taken with her and offers to help clear her name, provided she agrees to marry him. Marnie reluctantly agrees, but soon begins to exhibit strange, inexplicable behavior -- freezing up at the sight of certain colors or triggering sounds, for instance.

As the film progresses, more and more is revealed about Marnie's past, including her intense fear of thunderstorms and her deep-seated aversion to sex. Meanwhile, Mark struggles to get through to her and help her confront her trauma, even as she rebuffs his attempts to connect with her.

The film builds to a tense and thrilling climax, with Marnie and Mark's relationship on the brink of collapse and Marnie's past finally catching up with her.

Marnie is widely considered one of Hitchcock's more complex and challenging films, with its exploration of themes like trauma, sexual repression, and the psychology of criminals. The film's layered, intricate plot and Hitchcock's masterful direction have earned it a place among the director's most enduring works.

Overall, Marnie is a gripping and haunting thriller that succeeds both as a psychological study and as a taut, suspenseful drama.

Marnie is a 1964 thriller with a runtime of 2 hours and 10 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.1 and a MetaScore of 73.
