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 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!

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.

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.

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.

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!
