A perfect assassin. An innocent girl. They have nothing left to lose except each other. Léon, (Jean Reno) a heartless hitman working in New York, reluctantly takes in Mathilda (Natalie Portman in her debut role), a young girl who has lost her family at the hands of a corrupt policeman (Gary Oldman) and has no one else to turn to. An unconventional relationship blossoms as Mathilda becomes Léon’s protégée and plans to take revenge on those who murdered her family.
This intensely emotional film contains career defining performances and stands up as one of the top action- thrillers of all time whilst offering great depth and substance to the tragic multi-layered heroes.
