Biography

After apprenticing as an executive assistant at both Tri-Star Pictures and Paramount, Silver received her MFA at USC where her graduate thesis served as the basis for her screenwriting debut, the tidy psychological thriller about the "nanny-from-hell," "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle" (1992). The screenplay, a classic "you never know whom you can trust" scenario of the "Rosemary's Baby" school, astutely plays upon the subliminal fears of contemporary working mothers about the quality of care given their children by nannies.
