Holes – Searching For Friendship

The movie Holes centers on the character of Stanley Yelnats, played by the likable Shia Leboeuf. He is a teenager convicted of a crime he did not commit and is soon sent to Camp Greenlake for punishment. Despite its verdant name, Camp Greenlake is located far from any lakes, deep in the desert. Here, Stanley and other interred kids work by digging holes – hence the name of the story. That is all Stanley and his cohorts do: dig holes for hours and hours. What they did not know is what they are digging for.

While serving his time at Camp Greenlake, Stanley finally makes a friend named Zero, who never speaks. One day, at the lunch table, Stanley tells the rest of the boys what he did to earn his place at the camp. He explains a pair of sneakers had fallen from the sky, into his arms, and he was caught with them. The sneakers belonged to a famous ball player, named Clyde “Sweet Feet” Livingston, who had donated them to an orphanage. Then, surprisingly, Zero asks him if they were white with red stripes. Stanley, shocked, asks him “How did you know?”

In time, the two become close friends. Zero explains his name is actually Hector Zeroni, but because he never speaks, people assume he is an idiot, hence his nickname. They make a deal, wherein Hector agrees to dig the holes if Stanley will teach him how to read. This arrangement does not sit well with the other boys and they report this to the doctor on staff. Hector ends up hitting the doctor with the shovel and runs off into the desert. Fearing for his friend, Stanley devises a plan to get away and find him. Twist and turns abound as you find that these two boys’ families are entangled for several generations.

Indeed, if you enjoyed the film, you will love the book. There are more details and developments than the screen can accommodate. Holes, the book, is an award winning tale written by Louis Sachar. Among the awards it has earned are the Newberry Award, the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature, and the Missouri Mark Twain Award.

It is easy to see how Holes was so deserving. The book, though considered a piece of light fiction, touched on some very serious issues, including child mistreatment at the camp and even racism. Most of the issues did made it into the movie since the author also wrote the screenplay. The big difference between the book and the movie is Stanley’s character. In the book, he was overweight and many of the issues in the book stem from his lack of self-esteem because of his weight. Regardless, both the film and book deliver a powerful, entertaining adventure into friendship.
