This is about one woman trying to save the life of another woman, and having to confront the dreaded patriarchy in this patriarchal world. And all the worst of the male gender is going to be put in Clarice’s way. - Jonathan Demme
She’s been the lone woman in a sea of men her whole life…she’s been the one that was the smaller one her whole life, so she’s comfortable in that position. And in some ways, that’s what makes her the hero of the film. - Jodie Foster

“I’ve spent my whole adult life on the road, and in my mind I thought that someday I’d want to take a big break. But what I realized is that’s not who I am at all. I love working. I love being creative. I think I’ve just made peace with the idea that there’s not some other way I ought to be living. […] If you’re lucky enough to find yourself in this position, you better play till your hands bleed and just give it all you have.”
