“This movie’s religion, if it has one, is the Church of Performance, and Giamatti, Sessa, Randolph and company make it worth attending.” —Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
“All the actors shine in this exuberant movie gift from director Alexander Payne that has all the makings of a new holiday classic.” —Peter Travers, ABC News
From acclaimed director Alexander Payne (Sideways, The Descendants), The Holdovers follows a curmudgeonly instructor (Paul Giamatti) at a New England prep school who is forced to remain on campus during Christmas break to babysit the handful of students with nowhere to go. Eventually, he forms an unlikely bond with one of them — a damaged, brainy troublemaker (newcomer Dominic Sessa) — and with the school’s head cook, who has just lost a son in Vietnam (Da’Vine Joy Randolph).
