After collaborating on Sideways almost 20 years in the past, Alexander Payne and Paul Giamatti reunite for The Holdovers, Payne’s newest directorial effort. Giamatti stars as a crotchety boarding college instructor who’s been tasked with taking care of the scholars unable to depart campus for winter break in a interval screenplay by David Hemingson
An official synopsis reads:
The Holdovers follows a curmudgeonly teacher (Paul Giamatti) at a New England prep college who’s compelled to stay on campus throughout Christmas break to babysit the handful of scholars with nowhere to go. Ultimately he kinds an unlikely bond with considered one of them—a broken, brainy troublemaker (newcomer Dominic Sessa)—and with the college’s head cook dinner, who has simply misplaced a son in Vietnam (Da’Vine Pleasure Randolph).
