Parents' Night In #44: Leon The Professional (1994)

Kelly and Justin are back (in our new house!) for a movie review of another film we bonded over before we were dating, Luc Besson's action-drama masterpiece Leon!  Starring Jean Reno as Leon, a scenery-chewing Gary Oldman as DEA cop Norman Stansfield, and an 11-year-old Natalie Portman as Mathilda; Portman proved even at her young age to be a prodigious onscreen talent.  Leon (or The Professional) as it was called in the US, is the story of a socially stunted Italian hitman who develops a close relationship with an orphaned girl, taking her under his wing as she vows revenge on a crooked DEA officer (Oldman, our favorite of all his performances) who killed her family.  Leon is full of intense, violent set pieces but also contains touching, delicate moments between its two protagonists.  An underrated gem of a film. 

Intro song contains a snippet of Sting's "Shape of My Heart," backing music from Chris Jackson Music - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVdRr...

Parody lyrics:

You know that your hosts are named Justin and Kelly
You know that the jokes are fueled by the booze
You know this podcast belongs in the bin
And that it's called Parents' Night In
