  • “The Client” is an intense and engaging drama. This film does have many big name stars attached to it and the plot is terrific. Not overly dramatic, but causing just enough tension to see you through to the end. Tommy Lee Jones was super as the Rev. Roy, and Mary-Louise Parker was great as Mark’s mom. I also loved Susan Sarandon, her character was one of my favourite movie lawyers ever. Some parts are not as interesting as others, but if your a fan of these types of movies, I strongly encourage you to see this, and you’ll love the movie. Overall, “The Client” is another good John Grisham film: well written, well directed and excellent acting.
