Storyline

This series was based on the book by John Grisham about Reggie Love, a lawyer, who just started her practice and is also a recovering alcoholic which was made into a movie starring Susan Sarandon. Now Jobeth Williams is playing the part of Reggie. Her adversary in the movie, Roy Foltrig is also there. Only their relationship is not as adversarial as it was in the movie. Reggie occasionally calls on Roy for help, and at other times drives him crazy with high standards of ethics. Also Reggie is trying to convince her ex-husband to allow her access to her children.

User Reviews

Well done, especially an exceptional pilot.
27 October 2004 | by chcomSee all my reviews

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.
