Leon (Luc Besson, France/USA, 1994)

Oozing style, wit and confidence from every sprocket, and offering a dizzyingly, fresh perspective on the Big Apple that only Besson could bring, this is, in a word, wonderful.

In a remarkable debut Natalie Portman plays Mathilda, the 12-year-old daughter of a New York drug dealer, who's reluctantly taken in by Jean Reno's professional assassin after her family is murdered. Super stylish with the added bonus of a brilliantly OTT supporting turn from Gary Oldman.
