    Here is a movie synopsis:

    Crime/Gangster, Thriller and Drama
    1 hr. 51 min. A teenager, Stanley Yelnats (La Beouf), sent to Camp Green Lake, a Texas detention camp, for a crime (stealing a pair of sneakers) he didn't commit. There, he and the other boys are forced by the warden (Weaver), a fiery woman who paints her nails with snake venom, to dig holes as something of a "character-building experience." Each day, each boy must dig a hole five feet deep and wide, in the long-dry rock that was once the bottom of Green Lake.

    MPAA Rating: PG for violence, mild language and some thematic elements.

    Release Date: April 18th, 2003 (wide).

    READ THE BOOK IF YOU HAVEN"T ALREADY!

    We need to be careful not to leak out spoilers until after the movie comes out. I'm saying read the book everyone!

    Do you know the French title Sophie? If you are looking for it the author is Louis Sachar.

    I was really suprised they were making the book into a movie too, my mouth dropped open when I saw the trailer for it. I believe that La Beouf is going to be Stanley Yelnats or another character, he was the Ren's brother on Even Stevens, I didn't watch it so I cant' remember names.

    Thanks for the names! Perfectly OK! I completely agree with you on the donkey and onion man. It was sad. I wonder how they'll put the book to movie, on the preview they showed a shot of some of the holes. I looked really pretty cool. Um, wasn't Stanley supposed to be "chubby"? Shia Labeouf isn't "chubby" is he?

    I feel the book is definately worth reading. It is really really easy, and it is just a good story. It doesn't have any deep deep meaning, or hard story line to follow. It won the Newbury award in 1998 I think myabe 1999. I don't know, but it is a good book.
