The Holdovers (Relaxed)

Sunday 10 March 2024

Cinema

From acclaimed director Alexander Payne, 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).

The Holdovers has received 5 Oscar Nominations.

‘A masterclass in melancholy’ – The Guardian ★★★★☆

‘A Hallmark card vision of snowy, Seventies New England gives way to the loneliness of feeling moored in your own familiar comforts’ – The Independent ★★★★☆
