Story


Based on the award-winning book by Louis Sachar, "Holes" is a fun and poignant adventure that tells the story of Stanley Yelnats (SHIA LaBEOUF), an unusual young hero. Dogged by bad luck stemming from an ancient family curse, Stanley has little clue that he's in for the adventure of his life when sent to Camp Green Lake, where he and his campmates - Squid, Armpit, ZigZag, Magnet, X-Ray, and Zero - are mysteriously forced by the camp's director, known only as "The Warden" (SIGOURNEY WEAVER), and her right-han men Mr.Sir (JON VOIGHT) and Dr.Pendanski (TIM BLAKE NELSON), to dig holes in order "to build character." Nobody knows the real reason they're digging all these holes, but Stanley soon begins to question why the head of the camp is so interested in anything "special" the boys find. Through it all, Stanley and his campmates must stick together as they attempt to discover what's really hidden, solve the mystery, and break the Yelnats family curse forever.

Walt Disney Picture presents "Holes" in association with Walden Media, a Chicago Pacific Entertainment / Phoenix Pictures production. The film was directed by Andrew Davis, from a screenplay by Louis Sachar, based on his novel. Mike Medavoy, Davis, Teresa Tucker-Davies and Lowell Blank are producers with Marty Ewing and Louis Phillips executive producing. Buena Vista Pictures distributes.
