This is where FBI trainee Clarice Starling finds herself in Jonathan Demme’s film, The Silence of the Lambs, when she confronts a psychotic serial killer while also defying the quintessential role of women in a male-dominated profession. Ted Tally’s brilliant book-to-screen adaptation perfectly portrays Clarice and her lifelong…
