Sinopsis: Very few movies have ever won the five top Oscars: Best Actor, Actress, Screenplay, Director, and Picture. "The Silence of the Lambs" is one. Adapted from the novel by Thomas Harris, Agent Clarice Starling (Foster) assists in the hunt for a brutal killer who is so desperate to be female, he's sowing a woman's suit for himself out of real skin. Hoping to gain some insight into the killer's mind, she visits the notorious psychiatrist and serial killer Hannibal 'The Cannibal' Lecter (Hopkins) in prison. His dazzling intellect and psychopathic nature both messes with her head and leads her on the path to success. Such is the power of his performance, it's absolutely impossible to forget him. Nonetheless, the superb acting, memorable characters, and riveting story should have you hooked. And of course, once you've seen it, you can do your Lecter impression as well.
