Product Description

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 --This text refers to the VHS Tape edition.

Synopsis

The best screen version yet of a John Grisham novel delivers all-out suspense! 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. --This text refers to the VHS Tape edition.

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 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.

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.

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.

Fantastic value tripple film pack. Three of my favourite legal based thrillers. All very different films, but the writing and acting is brilliant throughout. If you enjoy courtroom drama and twist and turn thrillers then these are for you. Typical Warner Brothers though not giving the paying public any more than they have to. I say this as two of the DVDs are duel sided so you must turn over when prompted. Some people will find this annoying. It's cheap from Warner's, but not unexpected if you know their attitudes to dvd production.

I cannot write a great film, it's a brilliant film.
Negatives are, that a lot was missing from the book, for example at the end, the mafia had already dug up the grave in the garage, the boat was moved not raised and Mark Sway, chucked rocks through a window to disturb a neighbour whom came out with a shot gun, not Reggie Love shooting a power supply unit.
I could go on, but I will be forty seven (47) November 16th 2015 and the last film I felt tearful towards was Forrest Gump when the boy called Forrest 'Daddy'.
This film made me cry, as I felt like from reading the book I was in it.
It was also full of mutual respect, which was good.
My advice, is read the book first then get the films, John Grisham books are all over the local charity shops or cheap here, I paid fifty pence (50p) or one pound (£1) at my local charity shop even my dentist was selling them for a pound (£1).
Read them then watch the film.
So back to the book I give It five (5 stars, but, nine point nine, nine, nine ,nine (9.9999) et cetera out of ten (10) as nothing is perfect.
Anyone that says this film is bad needs psychiatric help!
