Holes on Film August 1, 2006

Posted by Myke Bartlett in CSC 2006 Classwork Archives.

1) Why do you think the opening of Holes, the film, is different to that of the book?

2) Are the characters the same as you imagine them? Explain why or why not. (At least four Characters.)

3) What are some other differences between the film and the book? Why do you think these changes were made?

4) How is the story of Stanley’s grandfather told in the book compared to how it’s told in the film?

5) Do you think the story of the curse of Stanley’s family is told better in the book or in the film? Explain why. (How does the film make it clear that Stanley is carrying a Zeroni up the mountain? How do we know this “allows” Stanley’s dad to invent his deodorant?)

6) Were any of your favourite bits of the book left out of the film? 7) Do you prefer the film or the book? Explain why.
