Reviews

From Amazon.co.uk

The exceptionally fine cast--Susan Sarandon, Tommy Lee Jones, J T Walsh, Mary-Louise Parker, Anthony Edwards, William H. Macy, Anthony LaPaglia, Ossie Davis and Brad Renfro--goes a long way toward making The Client one of the more solidly enjoyable screen adaptations of a John Grisham southern gothic legal thriller. Teen-hearthrob Renfro is a natural, playing a kid whose life is in jeopardy after he witnesses the death of a Mob lawyer. Susan Sarandon is the attorney who decides to look after the boy; nobody can match her when it comes to playing strong and protective maternal figures (Thelma and Louise, Lorenzo's Oil, Dead Man Walking). Sarandon won her fourth Oscar nomination as best actress for this role, before finally winning the following year for Dead Man Walking. Author Grisham was so impressed with former window dresser/fashion designer/screenwriter-turned-director Joel Schumacher's work on this movie that he later asked him to direct A Time to Kill. --Jim Emerson

Synopsis

A trailer park kid witnesses the suicide of a mob lawyer and ispursued by authorities trying to find out if he knows anything. To protect himself, he hires a feisty female attorney who takes up his case anddevelops a bond with him.

You gotta hand it to John Grisham: Nobody has the various lawyer cliches down pat as well as him - in fact, it almost seems as if he invented or at least, reinvented many of them. As in most of his thrillers, we get a whole handful in "The Client": the slimy mafia lawyer, the power-hungry politician-to-be, the self-aggrandizing ambulance-chaser, the grandfatherly judge and, of course, the motherly family law practitioner who turned to legal practice after overcoming a few troubles of her own. I think that leaves only the greedy corporate attorney, his cousin the corrupt judge and their perpetual antagonists, the starving public interest lawyer and the inquisitive student prodigy unrepresented here; but still, not a bad collection for a single thriller, even by Grisham. (And that doesn't even include the count of dumb and/or malicious cops, slick tabloid journalists and ruthless mobsters running around in this story.) But never mind: "The Client" is one of John Grisham's best-ever novels, and this movie surpasses many another big-screen adaptation of his books by several leagues. For Grisham at the top of his game is also an excellent storyteller, and in the hands of director Joel Schumacher his tale of beleaguered eleven-year-old Mark Sway who gets in trouble by becoming the reluctant last confidant of suicidal defense attorney Jerome "Romey" Clifford comes to life in spot-on and truly gripping fashion.Read more ›

Based on the John Grisham novel the film stars Tommy Lee Jones who plays a federal prosecutor only interested in getting information from a young boy who witnessed an important witnesses final moments without any regard for his welfare. Susan Sarandon steps in as a hard nosed lawyer who is intent on protecting the boy. With some great courtroom scenes this film is great for John Grisham fans and those who are after watching a good all round film.

A faithful adaptation of the novel. Jones and Sarandon are excellent. Sometimes the diction could have been clearer.

Great movie and no issues with the disc or cover. I purchased this film for a relative who asked if I knew where to get it. Would recommend the seller and shipping was reasonable too!

Larger than life characters well acted by a headline cast, and there's plenty of suspense and action before a satisfactory ending.

How does John Grisham keep writing such incredible stories. With stars such as Susan Sarandon, Tommy Lee Jones and precocious youngster Brad Renfro it was always going to be good, but this was truly outstanding

Some of John Grisham books have not been filmed to his writing standard, but this is a good attempt. Very watchable.
