This week were are digging even deeper into the Disney+ catalog with the 2003 movie, Holes.
Based on the award-winning book by Louis Sachar, Holes is about a boy, Stanley Yelnats IV who is wrongfully sent to a brutal juvenile corrections facility Camp Green Lake, where the camp warden and her staff force the children to dig holes all day long in the desert. The story sends us back to the past to follow Stanley’s great grandfather through events that lead to solving the modern-day mystery of the camp and the reason for digging the holes. Starring Sigourney Weaver, Jon Voight, and introducing a young Shia LaBeouf, Holes is much more than it seems.
So grab a shovel, because we’re going Deep in the Plus!
This was the first big film for Shia LaBeouf. When this movie was released in 2003, he was already known for his role as Louis on Even Stevens, but this was a big break for him.
This movie has it all, twists and turns, mystery and suspense, comedy and family fun. Based on an award-winning book and boasting an all-star cast, it seems like the perfect movie. But is it? Watch and see!
