Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins give career-best performances in Jonathan Demme's classic horror film, which won all five major Academy Awards.


Sweeping the Oscars with wins for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Director, this film is also notable for passing the Bechdel Test and putting an ambitious, fearless female character at the center of the male-driven detective genre.

Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins give the performances of their careers as a very unexpected crime-fighting duo: Clarice Starling, a rookie FBI agent, and Dr. Hannibal Lecter, the charismatic cannibal, who toys with her while helping to catch the serial killer Buffalo Bill. D: Jonathan Demme, US, 1991
