1991, Rated R
FBI cadet Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) is asked to help interrogate a notorious killer, Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins); Lecter supposedly has information on another killer, Buffalo Bill (Ted Levine), who is still at large. Though Lecter proves uncooperative with other agents and doesn’t even like his psychiatrist, Dr. Chilton (Anthony Heald), he quickly builds a report with Clarice.
When Clarice makes headway with Hannibal, Buffalo Bill kidnaps the daughter of a Senator, so the cadet is forced to change tactics.
As Clarice and her boss, Jack Crawford (Scott Glenn) draw nearer to catching Buffalo Bill, Hannibal Lecter grows more manipulative and pulls further away from the watchful eyes of the law.
