The Client (1994)

This is a John Grisham adaptation which follows a young boy Mark Sway (Brad Renfro) who witness a suicide of a Mafia lawyer. He is being hunted by the FBI who want him to testify against the Mafia while the Mafia are after him to stop him talking about a murder they have committed. He hires small time lawyer Reggie Love (Oscar Nominated Susan Sarandon) to help protect him and his family.

In what is quite a tense thriller that can be considered similar to a lot of other Grisham material  that are all very watchable. Put in the all star cast of Tommy Lee Jones, William H Macy, Anthony LaPaglia, Mary-Louise Parker, J.T.Walsh, Will Patton, Kim Coates, Ossie Davis. You get a some very solid acting performances.

Overall i would give this a 76%
