"No matter where you go, there you are."


A boy traps his family in the John and the Hole trailer

In this enigmatic and unsettling meditation on adolescent angst, 13-year-old John (Charlie Shotwell) discovers an unfinished bunker while exploring the neighboring woods — a deep hole in the ground. Seemingly without provocation, he drugs his affluent parents (Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Ehle) and older sister (Taissa Farmiga), holding them captive within the bunker. As they anxiously wait for John to free them from the hole, the boy returns home, where he can finally enjoy and explore a newfound independence.

A selection of the 2020 Cannes and 2021 Sundance film festivals, John and the Hole is adapted by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Nicolás Giacobone (Biutiful, Birdman) from his short story “El Pozo.”

Directed by Pascual Sisto, the film hits US cinemas and VOD on 6th August 2021.
