Stanley Yelnats tries to dig up the truth in this inventive and darkly humorous tale of crime and punishment–and redemption.

Sigourney Weaver, Jon Voight and Tim Blake Nelson star in this live-action theatrical release based upon the award-winning children's book by Louis Sachar. With all the bad luck that his family has encountered, Stanley Yelnats isn't surprised when he gets sent to a juvenile detention center. At the center, the mysterious warden makes the boys dig huge holes, claiming that hard labor builds character. But Stanley soon discovers that the boys are really being used to hunt for treasure buried years ago by a Wild West outlaw. Costarring Shia La Beouf, Khleo Thomas, Patricia Arquette and Henry Winkler, the film is rated PG for violence, mild language and some thematic elements.
