The Client

Settle in. Breathe deep. Hold tight as The Client, the best screen version yet of a John Grisham novel, delivers all-out, moment-by-moment suspense.

Academy Award winners Susan Sarandon & Tommy Lee Jones headline this whirlwind thriller. Newcomer Brad Renfro plays 11-year-old Mark Sway, torn between what he knows & what he can never tell. A hitman will kill Mark if the boy reveals what he knows about a Mob murder. An ambitious federal prosecutor (Jones) will keep the pressure on until Mark tells all. Mark is now a pawn in a deadly game. And his only ally is a courageous attorney (Sarandon) who risks her career - and unexpectedly, her life.
