"Brad Renfro (Sleepers) plays Mark Sway, an eleven-year-old torn between what he knows and what he can never tell. A hitman (Anthony LaPaglia, So I Married an Axe Murderer) will snuff him in half a heartbeat if Mark reveals what he learned about a Mob murder. An ambitious federal prosecutor (Tommy Lee Jones, U.S. Marshals) will keep the pressure on until Mark tells all. Suddenly, Mark isn't a boy playing air guitar anymore. He's a pawn in a deadly game. And his only ally is a courageous but unseasoned attorney (Susan Sarandon, Dead Man Walking) who risks her career for him....but never imagines she'll also risk her life. Director Joel Schumacher's film features a sterling ensemble cast that includes Mary-Louise Parker (Weeds), Anthony Edwards (Zodiac), J.T. Walsh (The Negotiator), Kim Coates (Sons of Anarchy), Ossie Davis (Do the Right Thing), Anthony Heald (The Silence of the Lambs), Will Patton (Meek's Cutoff), Bradley Whitford (The Cabin in the Woods), and William H. Macy (Shameless)."
Warner's Blu-ray will present The Bonfire of the Vanities in its 1.85:1 original aspect ratio and The Client in its 2.39:1 original aspect ratio. Further technical and supplementary details are still unknown.
Both The Bonfire of the Vanities and The Client are expected to street on November 6th.
The Client is a buy because it's good. The Bonfire of the Vanities will be bought because it's DePalma, I saw it years after the original release while not great it's watchable and will get when price is right.
Nice to see WHV continuing their support for "deep" catalog. THE CLIENT's serviceable DVD makes the pic's BD release all the more welcome.
@Schoecp: I think THE FIRM was released as a Best Buy exclu in May 2011. In any event, it's slated for general release (along with several other former BB exclusives from Paramount) on September 12, 2012.
I saw "The Client" on HDMovies recently it looked quite nice so hopefully transfer will be good. I suspect "The Bonfire of the Vanities" will be soft and alot of people will complain but that's how many of DePalma's flick look ex. Carrie, Dressed to Kill, Body Double.
