Film details

Synopsis

Thriller: ten years after Hannibal Lecter vanished, FBI agent Clarice Starling has the unenviable reputation for the highest kill rate and is not at all popular with her superiors. After a shootout at a drugs bust goes wrong, Clarice comes up against Paul Krendler of the Justice Department and is demoted for showing the bureau in a poor light. Meanwhile the wealthy Mason Verger is intent on tracking down and exacting revenge upon Lecter, who left him confined to a wheelchair after an attack he barely survived. To this end Verger posts a $3 million reward for Lecter's whereabouts.
