About the Films “Pelican Brief” A clever law student (Roberts) knows a secret, an investigative reporter (Washington) wants her story, and everyone else wants them dead. “The Client” An attorney (Jones), out for a conviction, and a rookie lawyer (Sarandon), out of her league, clash over a boy who holds a secret. “A Time To Kill” Tensions explode into a fury of activism, Klan terror and a stirring fight for justice when a murder trial ignites racial animosities in a small town. “Runaway Jury” Gene Hackman, Dustin Hoffman, John Cusack and Rachel Weisz star as a gun maker goes on trial, and the backroom maneuvering goes into high gear.
