  • Anthony Hopkins & Jodie Foster
  • the movie’s influence on today’s movies and tv shows
  • a strong female character
  • profiling and looking for clues
  • and much, much more!


A psychopath, known as Buffalo Bill, is kidnapping and murdering young women across the midwest. Believing it takes one to know one, the FBI sends Agent Clarice Starling to interview a demented prisoner who may provide psychological insight and clues to the killer’s actions.

The prisoner is psychiatrist, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a brilliant, murderous cannibal who will only help Starling, if she will feed his morbid curiosity with details of her own complicated life. This twisted relationship forces Starling not only to confront her psychological demons, but leads her face to face, with a demented, heinous killer… an incarnation of evil so powerful, that she may not have the courage – or strength – to stop him!
