Paul Giamatti stars in The Holdovers, the delightful new 1970s-set comedy-drama from Alexander Payne.

Curmudgeonly Barton Academy teacher Paul Hunham (Paul Giamatti) is forced to supervise students who can’t return home for the Christmas holidays. This year, he’s cohabiting with Angus (Dominic Sessa) and the school’s head cook, Mary (Da’Vine Joy Randolph), both of whom are struggling with unseasonal personal circumstances. Stuck together in the absence of family, this unlikely trio is repeatedly drawn together and apart. Beautifully performed and replete with authentic 1970s stylings, The Holdovers is a delightful new work from Payne, both warm and melancholic.
