Leon, the top hit man in New York, has earned a rep as an effective "cleaner".

Before long, Mathilda's thoughts turn to revenge, and she considers following in Leon's footsteps.

Citizen Rules
I really liked her in V for Vendetta but had never seen her when she was a kid actor, and could she act up a storm! Mathilda was a great character too.
The Rodent
Though Portman, even at that young age she was, carries the role perfectly.
TheUsualSuspect
No real loss, you still feel uneasy about the relationship when she calls him her lover to the hotel manager.
