Based on the award-winning book by Louis Sachar, HOLES is a funny and poignant adventure that tells the story of Stanley Yelnats (LaBeouf), an unusual young hero. Dogged by back 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 and Zero - are mysteriously forced by the camp's director, known only as 'The Warden' (Sigourney Weaver), and her right-hand 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 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.
