Synopsis

In this film, faithfully adapted from its source novel, young Stanley Yelnats IV, perpetually in the wrong place at the wrong time, is sent to a sinister correctional facility in the desert after being falsely accused of theft. Stanley is set to work digging holes with the rest of the kids, little realising that this punishment will help resolve issues in his own family's strange past. With its multiple flashbacks, bizarre characters and unusual subject matter, this is about as offbeat as family films get, and is guaranteed entertainment for all ages.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
