Settle in. Take a deep breath. Hold tight. The best screen version yet of a novel by John Grisham ("The Firm", "The Pelican Brief") delivers all-out, moment-by-moment suspense!
Headliners Susan Sarandon and Tommy Lee Jones join newcomer Brad Renfro in "The Client", a whirlwind thriller that "starts like a house afire and keeps on blazing" (Chicago Tribune). Renfro plays Mark Sway, an 11-year-old torn between what he knows and what he can never tell.
A hitman will snuff him in half a heartbeat if Mark reveals what he learned about a Mob murder. An ambitious federal prosecutor (Jones) will keep the pressure on until Mark tells all. Suddenly, Mark isn’t a boy playing air guitar anymore. He’s a pawn in a deadly game. And his only ally is a courageous but unseasoned attorney (Sarandon) who risks her career for him...but never imagines she’ll also risk her life.
