An FBI agent requires help from a psychopath in order to catch a serial killer in this Oscar®-laden classic thriller. FBI agent Clarice Starling, a specialist in serial killers, is fresh out of training and on the hunt for psychopathic murderer Buffalo Bill before his female body count rises. She adopts a high-risk strategy in visiting the imprisoned, dangerous and highly intelligent psychiatrist Dr Hannibal Lecter for his insight. But Lecter wants something in return from her that goes far beyond the acceptable. Author Thomas Harris created an unforgettable duo in Lecter and Starling, and Hopkins and Foster perfectly capture this disturbing relationship on screen. Showered with awards upon its release, this is one of the great thrillers of the last 30 years, and remains as vital and horrific today.
