The Silence of the Lambs

"To enter the mind of a killer she must challenge the mind of a madman."

This movie is about a young FBI trainee, Clarice Starling, who is tasked with gathering information from one of the most deadly and intelligent serial killers in America. The FBI is hunting a new serial killer called Buffalo Bill. Bill abducts his victims and then skins them before dumping the bodies. Clarice is tasked with gathering information from Dr. Hannibal Lecter, an ex-psychiatrist that would kill and eat his victims. Dr. Lecter may have treated Buffalo Bill in the past and he has certain insights into his psyche.

Dr. Lecter doesn't give information freely and makes a deal with Clarice to give information about her life as he gives information about Bill. The threat rises as the daughter of a prominent congresswoman is kidnapped and the push to find Bill becomes top priority. Clarice follows the leads of Hannibal Lecter and ends up in a life and death struggle with Buffalo Bill.
