Have an old friend for dinner at Nitehawk and Pat Lafrieda’s FILM FEAST presentation of THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS.
Clarice Starling, a top student at the FBI’s training academy, is sent to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter to provide insight on another serial killer who they’re trying to capture. In a now iconic role, Anthony Hopkin’s Lecter is a brilliant psychiatrist who is also a violent psychopath, serving life behind bars for various acts of murder and cannibalism. Tense, beautiful, and arresting, Jonathan Demme’s The Silence of the Lambs shows the journey of a young woman sent to be both the intelligent and bait to solve the case.
As always, our Film Feasts serve each dish at the moment its inspirational scene comes on the screen!
