Luc Besson's hyper-stylized French punk hit finally gets the Neon Dreams treatment. A hard-edged thriller that transcends its genre, Nikita's transformation from drug-addled petty criminal to badass government assassin marks one of the most gleefully satisfying evolutions in cinema history. Persistently copied but never replicated, Anne Parillaud’s groundbreaking performance has aged amazingly well and is still a highpoint in female-led action films.
This screening and others are made possible thanks to our wonderful sponsor Hollywood Suite. As always there will be a fully licensed event, featuring a fabulous pre-show and great prizes before the film. So be sure to arrive early!
