The Silence of the Lambs (All Time Classics)
“Stunning” (Los Angeles Times), ‘spellbinding” (The Hollywood Reporter) and “shockingly powerful” (New York Magazine), this terrifying masterpiece garnered five 1991 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Director, Actor and Actress. A psychopath is kidnapping and murdering young women across the midwest. Believing it takes one to know one to know one, the F.B.I. sends Agent Clarice Starling (Foster) to interview a demented prisoner who may provide psychological insight and clues to the killer's actions. The prisoner, psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Hopkins), is a brilliant, murderous cannibal who will only help starling if she will feed his morbid curiosity with detail about her own complicated life. This twisted relationship forces Starling not only to confront her psycho logical demons, but also brings her face to face with a demented, heinous killer, an incarnation of evil so powerful, that she may not have the courage-or stop him!
