The Client

A sterling cast headed by Oscar-nominated Susan Sarandon makes this slick thriller one of the better adaptations of a John Grisham bestseller. Mark Sway (Brad Renfro) witnesses the suicide of a Mafia lawyer, who confesses that the Mob was behind the murder of a U.S. senator. Mark's brother is traumatized into a coma by the incident; gangster Barry Muldano (Anthony LaPaglia) is soon on Mark's trail, and in desperation, he arrives at the office of recovering alcoholic lawyer Reggie Love (Sarandon). With the Mob after them, and a ruthless federal attorney (Tommy Lee Jones) trying to force Mark to reveal what he knows, Love battles to guarantee the safety of her client and his family. The relationship between Reggie Love and Mark Sway is the center of the film, adding considerable character development to plot's routine elements. Director Joel Schumacher helmed another Grisham adaptation, A Time To Kill, in 1996.

I loved this movie, and have it on DVD, and now want to have it on Blu-ray. Another great Grisham movie is The Pelican Brief.

'The Client' is the best movie i have ever seen....with a little bit of the mob and the mafia makes it a on the edge of your seat movie...i recomend it for people with a big sence of humor all though it isn't funny in some part but most of the movie is 'A on the edge of your seat experience'..with Susan Sarandon, Tommy Lee Jones, and Brad Renfro act together to make this movie the best!

More like 3 and a half. I remember seeing this on TV and it was already half way into the film. Finally I told myself to watch this from beginning to end. The movie is really good, and the story is suspenseful. The cast was good, especially Susan Sarandon and a young Brad Renfro (RIP). You have Mark and his brother that witness a lawyer commit suicide. From there Mark gets a lawyer while someone is trying to kill him because of what the lawyer told him before he died. Its one of my favorite films now. Recommend it if you like suspenseful mystery movies or the book the film is based on.

'The Client' closely follows John Grisham's amazing novel of the same name. It is edge of your seat stuff. Superb acting highly compliments the awesome plotline. I recommend 'The Client' to anyone who wants to be entertained with an intelligent story and exellent acting.
