Episode Description

With interviews from cast and crew, including stars Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins, and director Jonathan Demme, you'll hear how a film with a young director trained in B-movies and cheesy comedies managed to make one of the most chilling films in decades, and how a studio in the midst of collapse could turn out a film that took the box office and Oscars by storm. We'll also examine how Foster was able to make the transition from child star to silver screen sensation, and how an all-but-retired Hopkins was coerced back into the Hollywood scene to create one of the most indelible villains in film history. And finally, we'll learn that despite the darkness of the subject matter, Demme and the crew managed to withstand a bone-chilling Pittsburgh winter to work at the top of their game and turn out an unforgettable film. So grab some fava beans and a nice Chianti, sit back, and enjoy!
