The Silence of the Lambs

DRINK MATCH: Wine

The classic thriller THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS never ceases to provide an evening of enjoyment, whether viewed alone or with company. A film this cerebral can't be taken in with just any old drink; you need to feel intellectual. Wine is the clear choice here. If you've got a nice couch and haven't seen the movie before, you may want to opt for a white variety. For those who want to stay true to the themes of the movie, red is the optimal choice. And for you "TV dinner" types, food is best enjoyed prior to viewing.
