La Femme Nikita + The Professional double screening

Savor two back-to-back doses of director Luc Besson films, spotlighting his iconic action-packed scenes, unusual twists, and cinéma du look style in the 1990’s thrillers La Femme Nikita and The Professional. First, watch a beautiful criminal opt out of an orange jumpsuit for life as a top-secret political assassin in the French film (with English subtitles) La Femme Nikita. This double feature makes a smooth transition from one trained killer to another in The Professional where you’ll see a young Natalie Portman befriend an unlikely neighbor and avenge the death of her parents.
