The Silence of The Lambs15

Watch the 30th anniversary screening of Jonathan Demme’s atmospheric horror masterpiece. A disturbing Halloween classic that taps into a lasting cultural fascination with serial killers, THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS is one of just three films ever to win all of the “big five” Oscars in 1992: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Actor and Actress in a Leading Role (Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins). Jodie Foster stars as Clarice Starling, a top student at the FBI’s training academy. Jack Crawford (Scott Glenn) wants Clarice to interview Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins), a brilliant forensic psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer, serving a life sentence. Crawford believes that Lecter may have insight into a case and that Starling, as an attractive young woman, may be just the bait to draw him out.
