The Silence of the Lambs (15)

Tickets from £5.40
Jonathan Demme's multi- award-winning thriller which broke the mould of cinematic portrayals of insanity and crime, presented with an introduction by Dr Stephen Kelly on the calculating manipulative mind of a psychopath.

Jodie Foster plays novice FBI novice agent, Clarice Starling who seeks help on her latest case from a uniquely dangerous psychiatrist, striking a chilling "quid pro quo" bargain. Anthony Hopkins is forever associated with his mesmerising portrayal of Hannibal "the Cannibal" in this devastatingly unnerving masterpiece featuring cinema's most enduring psycho-killer.

Dr Kelly's talk examines the behavioural characteristics of a psychopath and considers what might be going wrong in the brain to make someone kill without caring.

"We get into Lecter's twisted skull and, through this outrageous descent, we come to see this sinister in the everyday." Hollywood Reporter

Dir. Jonathan Demme / US / 1991 / 1h 58m + introduction + Q&A
With: Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins, Scott Glen
