Will be on (in the UK) on Sunday at 10pm, Channel 4. Sorry if it was wrong to start a new thread for this, I just thought people could discuss the film here as opposed to talking about the transcript in the other one.

This is one of my favourite Keira films, probably because it's the first role I saw her in. Anyway, watch it!

Is this film available in the United States yet, or am I just totally out of it?

I havn't been able to find it in the US. I bought it on dvd of of ebay from Canada for $15. Definately worth it.

I bought it off of Amazon.com in the US. It's not that good of a movie in my opinion.

Average film, if that, only saved for as long as Frankie's alive...the second she's no longer in it (shan't say why for those who've not seen it)...the film goes pear-shaped.

I just have to say, that i only just seen the hole, and i thought it was awesome, Acting was good, especially the psychiatrist women from matilda, good character base, nice effects and photography, and a good story line, with some great twists, some nice keira scenes of course :).

The only bad things i can think of would be that the ending didnt tie everything up, and ofcourse i realise that this was made this way to keep the viewer thinking, but I dislike endings like that, i want the end of the story.
Another thing would have had to be that the story was quite predictable once you started seeing the true 'visions'.

I think this is one of the movies were Keira actually has to act a semi-difficult and diverse role, sick, slutty etc. I am only comparing this movie to POTC, BILB, and LA, but this would certainly be better than BILB as a overall movie, but i dont think it even comes close to POTC.

I was pleasently suprised by this movie, what were your thoughts when you first watched it ?.


...also Keiras hair dosn't look good long and strait, but thats just my opinion.

I liked it! I thought Thora Birch was a bit iffy in it, but I think it's a role Keira suited, and so gave a convincing performance. Could've done without the gratuitous nudity, but an unpopular opinion I'm sure ;) I also liked the soundtrack.

Except BILB is better than POTC to begin with.

Oh...and Keira's hair always looks lovely.

For those who have the canada release of "The Hole" on DVD, can find a different cover behind the one that's shown. Flip it over, and you'll see the cover in a different language. Something I found awhile ago that shocked me.

Was there ever a premiere for The Hole? The only pictures I can find are of Keira and Thora at the Bridget Jones premiere.

Good Movie, I recently bought it on DVD! I thought that Keira was very good in it, as were the others. It was a bit predictable toward the end though!! Oh and Keira's hair wasn't as nice in this as in King Arthur or POTC.

Here's the new artwork (http://www.dvdanswers.com/index.php?r=0&s=1&c=4754&n=1&burl=) for the R1 re-release of The Hole. There's a lot more focus on Keira this time.

Apart from the artwork, it sounds pretty much the same as the Canada release. That's too bad.

Those are definitely all the same bonus features as on the Canada release, which I suppose is the one I have...I got it off Amazon...I'm pretty sure it was from Canada.

This is clearly a case of trying to latch on to Keira's new found fame, and to be honest, I never even heard of this movie's release here in the States. So, if it ups the sales and gives Keira more exposure (no nudity puns intended of course) then win. Either way...I don't think it's unfair to give Keira more billing with this one...she is in the movie a lot...and for me...well...the movie plummets without her in it.

I agree, it's a fairly obvious marketing ploy, and not that uncommon. I'm not sure if the movie was ever released in the States either, I only referred to it as a Region 1 re-release because there was already a R1 version in existence (the Canadian one you mentioned).

It's about a group of British teenagers who have a party inside an old WWII bunker. However when one of the friends leave and doesn't return, the gang finds themselves stuck, with no way out. The heroine of the story is played by Thora Birch, whose story is told in flashback after she winds up in a hospital and everyone wants to know what happened.

About the focused-on-Keira The Hole artwork (http://www.dvdanswers.com/images/screenshots/holer1cover.jpg), they've photoshopped her eyes! They're blue :S
