LEON (1994): Mathilda (Natalie Portman) is a Nymphet Prostitute

13-year-old Natalie Portman in Leon (1994)
The award winning non-fiction writer Rich Cohen wrote in a Vanity Fair article about his effort to ghost write a book about Theodore Forstmann, "Writing a nonfiction story is like cracking a safe. It seems impossible at the beginning, but once your're in, you're in." That is exactly what I experienced while writing The Allure of Nymphets. Despite the fact that the book has been published, I'm still pulling pulling jewels out of the safe for this blog.

For example, on my plane ride back into New York City on Monday, a young lady two rows up was watching Leon (1994) on her humongous silver MacBook. I left Leon out of the appendix of The Allure of Nymphets, because the relationship between the Mathilda (13-year-old Natalie Portman) and Leon (46-year-old Jean Reno) had some sexual overtones, but was for the most part platonic.
