Format: DVD
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 ›

I don't regard myself as any type of film critic, but I enjoy what suits my mode at any one time...comedy, fiction, history, escapism, and if a film endears me to watch it more than once, then it has done the job!

I watched this, immediately lent it to my parents to watch, and got it back straight away to watch again! The acting from the younsters of the cast is first class, and the older professionals do what they do well. The whole story is quite believable, with some really go twists and suspension!

Highly Recommended!

This film features Susan Sarandon and Tommy Lee Jones as opposing lawyers, when two young boy witness a mob lawyer kill himself after first disclosing some secrets to one of the terrified boys, This particular boy is played by the now sadly departed Brad Renfro who as Mark Sway acts the established actors off screen, the story is slight but able to propel the film along, but without Renfro it would be almost a caricature of a movie with TLJ chewing the scenery as Reverend Roy Foltrigg, When Mark has been sufficiently scared by the police he seeks out a lawyer and finds Sarandons Reggie Love, an alcoholic who lost her own children and so begins the battle of David and Goliath with mob hitman in the background trying to kill Mark.

It remains an utterly engaging film but mainly because of the powerhouse performance of a young Brad Renfro who sadly never lived to become the legend his performance suggests.

Format: VHS Tape
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.

Bought out of interest, having just read the book. The Grisham films go at a fair clip compared to the books, and much detail is discarded. Also the popular culture of the Southern US states: racism, sexism etc. can seem a bit jarring. A good film usually makes itself felt in the first few minutes, and this is no exception.

Strong and beliveable roles from all the cast, I watched the film first then brought the book, only one or two minor changes between the two, I really enjoyed watching but had a twinge of sadness over Brad Renfo, what a waste of a live

Bought this to replace a VHS tape of the movie, which I think is a really good version of the original story. All the principal actors played the parts really well, and the film held attention throughout, most satisfying to watch.
