So, I was on a Newberry Medal kick for a while, and I recently read Holes, the 1999 winner. Last night, I rented the movie. It's a long movie, over two hours, but it's amazingly faithful to the book. Having read the book, I wondered how they were going to convey the whole story. It's a multi-generation story where the sin's of the father affect future generations. They did a good job of interweaving flashback type scenes and making it work so you could understand how everything tied together, and why the characters in the present were doing what they did. I was also impressed by the number of reasonably large names in the cast.
