Aro Recommended Holes


USA 2003, 117 minutes
Dir. Andrew Davis
Rating: [M]
Genres: Comedy, Family / Prison

Topics: Educational Resource.


Aroview: Surprisingly cunning comedy, where a teenager is unjustly sent to an isolated reformatory, and set to work digging holes in the desert for no apparent reason.

Blessed with a top cast, and some clever comic and dramatic ploys, this develops its teenage-eye view into a classic fable of adolescence, reminiscent in tone of Roald Dahl. Adapted from the cult novel by Louis Sacher, this unveils its quirky storyline, with an intriguing structure and visual flair.
