The Birds

iewer initially perceives to be romance, because ideally the audience needs to be able to like the characters being pushed together.

Hitchcock’s strengths do not seem to be in his complex female characters, instead they seem to fill archetypes, be that either cunning, jealous, prone to squabbling etc. The Birds is particularly guilty of this type of portrayal, and this is seen in Mitch’s mother, Lydia - a figure that looms large in Mitch’s life, a shrewish character whose status as a widow has forced her to aim her energies at the family members she has left.
