The Holdovers

Uploaded by Crandell Movies
Newcomer Dominic Sessa, Paul Giamatti and Da'Vine Joy Randolph star.
Beautifully bittersweet, The Holdovers marks a satisfying return to form for Oscar-winning director Alexander Payne (Sideways, The Descendants). With a throwback '70s style, this dark comedy centers on a cranky prep school history teacher (Paul Giamatti) forced to remain on campus over the holidays to look after the troubled student (newcomer Dominic Sessa) who has nowhere else to go. Da'Vine Joy Randolph plays the school's head cook grieving the loss of her son in Vietnam. She goes head-to-head with Giamatti and Sessa as they all unfold their complex character arcs.
