The Silence of the Lambs

Opens on

Director: Jonathan Demme Run Time: 118 min. Format: DCP Rating: R Release Year: 1991

Starring: Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins, Scott Glenn

Clarice Starling, a top student at the FBI’s training academy, is sent to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter, to provide insight into a serial killer being pursued by the FBI. In a now iconic role, Anthony Hopkin’s Lecter is a brilliant psychiatrist who is also a violent psychopath, serving life behind bars for acts of murder and cannibalism. Tense, beautiful and arresting, Jonathan Demme’s The Silence of the Lambs mingles the horrors of criminal acts with the psychological horrors of Lecter’s slow-motion interrogation of Clarice and of her memories that emerge from it.
