Good Book, Great Movie, Great Music

  • Mar 2, 2008
My son was in the sweet spot of the age group Disney targeted for this movie, and having read the book, he insisted this was a must-see, so my wife and son went to the see the movie in the theatre. When she was impressed by the movie, and read the book, I followed suit watching this DVD when it came out, and agreed.

Budding star Shia LeBeouf carries the role of Stanley Yelnats, who is falsely accused of a juvenile crime that lands him at Camp Green Lake (which is neither), where the form of punishment and reform philosophy is that digging holes makes young men stronger. It also enables the crooked camp warden and guards to search for a long lost treasure, which brings together two backstories that are told in flashback and that finally merge into the present action at the climactic finale.

The background music is excellent, not just driving the action but setting the scene with rock, blues, country, and hip-hop sounds that are, like the movie and the book Holes, as mature and well-crafted as any on the movie screen today.
