Product Description

Triple bill of John Grisham adaptations. In 'The Client', young Mark and his brother are out wandering in the woods when they stumble across a fat mob lawyer about to commit suicide. The lawyer tells Mark where a dead body is hidden and this leads to his subsequent questioning by a hard-boiled FBI attorney (Tommy Lee Jones). But Mark also finds that his life is at risk from mob hitmen and his only chance of survival rests in the hands of his lawyer (Susan Sarandon). In 'The Pelican Brief', sharp-witted law student Darby Shaw (Julia Roberts) finds herself the target for murder when her essay describing why two US justices were killed falls into the wrong hands. Joining forces with investigative journalist Gray Grantham (Denzel Washington), she determines to find out who is behind the threats against her life and bring them to justice. In 'A Time to Kill', Carl Lee (Samuel L. Jackson) seeks violent revenge after his 10-year-old daughter is brutally assaulted. When his actions lead to his arrest, lawyer Jake Brigance (Matthew McConaughey) has to battle against mounting pressure from both the Ku Klux Klan and the Civil Rights Movement to save Carl from Death Row. Sandra Bullock also stars as Brigance's student aide, while Kevin Spacey appears as the ruthless prosecutor, Rufus Buckley.

A sterling part is played by the young boy in The Client as well as the usual top class performances you would expect from Tommy Lee Jones and Susan Sarandon

My sister-in-law and I have not seen a dud Denzel Washington movie and The Pelican Brief shows off his remarkable talent yet again. Julia Roberts also puts up a great performance as the originator of "the brief" which only causes high government authorities to want her dead.

Matthew McConaughey and Samuel Jackson play the pivotal roles in this tense drama primarily concerning Samuel's vigilante action against his daughters rapists. It also highlights the racial tension in this small southern town.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent choice and very good value 5 May 2013
Verified Purchase
I had read all three of these John Grisham books, and the films were almost as good. Tommy Lee Jones is a superb actor, and the clash between him and Susan Sarandon gave an interesting edge to the plot. One of the best performances was by the children's mother who tried hard to do the best for her children.
The Pelican Brief was also very good, and highlighted the hidden agendas played out in high places and political intrigue masking the truth.
The last film touched on sensitive issues of race and colour, and deep seated prejudice prevalent in parts of the USA. Of all three films, this was probably the best as it had more depth and twists, with a star cast.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice collection, but 7 May 2014
By Stine
Verified Purchase
Nice films, nothing to complain about. But be aware that the movie starts right away, with no menu at the beginning. Also, on one of the films, you have to flip the disc halfway through to watch the second half. But as it is also very cheap, I think the value is still great.
