Jane Kulow, director of our Virginia Center for the Book, will interview John Grisham following a screening of The Client during the Virginia Film Festival.
Based on the John Grisham bestseller, The Client revolves around Mark, a street-smart 11-year-old boy who is mixed up in a world of criminal activity not meant for him. With no means of getting out, he must rely on an inexperienced lawyer with a history of substance abuse to come to his rescue. This film delves into the lively, tense, and emotionally involved world of shady dealings associated with mobsters and corrupt officials. A cinematic masterpiece from renowned filmmaker Joel Schumacher, this timeless 1994 thriller brings to light the lawless nature of man and a trail of corruption gone unnoticed.
