Not enough people saw "John Grisham's 'The Client'" so it was
overlooked and faded off TV screens pretty fast. I looked forward to
each episode; however, the pilot was one of the best written and
directed of its genre that I've ever seen. Wonderful characters, a
reality of time and place and a genuine humanity distinguished it from
the competition then and now. It pulled me in from the first frame. For
me to remember it all this time says a lot.
A young boy is in trouble and the lawyer who helps him has a few messes of her own. She knows everyone in her small southern town and each relationship has its complications. I especially applaud JoBeth Williams, John Heard, the young boy, who I believe was Brad Renfrew, and Ossie Davis, who raises the bar every time he works. It's too bad not enough people saw this one.
