The Hole

A fun-filled getaway for four teenagers becomes a season in Hell in this tense British thriller. Liz Dunn (Thora Birch) is a student at an exclusive private school who is head over heels for Mike Steel (Desmond Harrington), a handsome classmate whose father is a well-known American rock star. Liz, however, is self-conscious about her looks and is convinced Mike would rather be with the prettier girls in her class. Liz is also unenthusiastic about an upcoming field trip, in which she and the other students will have to camp out for three days while studying local geography. Liz confesses her infatuation with Mike to Martin Taylor (Daniel Brocklebank), a science-minded geek who happens to be in love with Liz, though she's not aware of it. Martin proposes a solution to both of Liz's problems; he's found an underground bunker built during World War II near the school grounds, and he arranges a little party in which Liz and Mike will spend the three days of the field trip in the bunker, with class couple Geoff (Laurence Fox) and Frankie (Keira Knightley) going along, giving Liz a perfect chance to impress Mike with her charm. The students lay in a supply of food, water, and booze to last them for three days, but after 72 hours, they discover that Martin has locked them in, and they're not sure if he intends to come by and let them out. The Hole also stars Embeth Davidtz as a psychiatrist who consults with Liz after her ordeal.

Great thriller! It really does the book justice. Kiera Knightley does and great job of preforming Frankie. And Thora Birch made a great Liz! The only thing I saw wrong was, they did not include Alex in the movie. But it was great anyway! See it. You will love it!
