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).                

In Payne’s work, one individual’s foibles and failings can open another’s perception; his humans lead not by example, but through their flaws. This is one of the director’s greatest films.-Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture

This exactly the type of theatrical film that we were told Hollywood would not be making in the post-pandemic era: a non-franchise, character-driven, middling-budget drama aimed at adults. Thank goodness, at least in this case, the pundits were wrong. -Cary Darling, Houston Chronicle
