Holes Overview

Dogged by bad luck stemming from an ancient family curse, Stanley Yelnats (LaBeouf) 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, Zig-Zag, Magnet, X-Ray, and Zero -- are mysteriously forced by the camp's director, known only as "The Warden" (Weaver), and her right-hand men Mr. Sir (Voight) and Dr. Pendanski (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.

Based on the award-winning book by Louis Sachar.
