Young/child actresses can always get an Oscar nomination for their performances, but not the young actors. They have to wait until they'll be older...
How unfair is that?
Brad Renfro was perfect in "The Client". He is breathtakingly real and strong in every single sciene. It's such a sad thing that he wasn't nominated for awards. I was inspired by his work and thought that he was unforgettable.
Also, I didn't know that he died in 2008, sad, just sad.
