The Holdovers

Wednesday, Jan 10, 2024 at 7:00 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

With Alexander Payne in person!

Dir. Alexander Payne. 2023, 133 mins. DCP. With Paul Giamatti, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Dominic Sessa. Giamatti makes a welcome return to Payne-land in a finely etched performance as a curmudgeonly instructor at a New England prep school who is forced to supervise a handful of boys with nowhere to go over the Christmas holiday break. Through a series of unforeseen adventures, he winds up bonding with one kid in particular, a brainy troublemaker (Sessa), and with the school’s head cook (Randolph), who is in mourning over a recent, devastating loss. With its effortless mix of comedy and pathos, Payne’s acclaimed 1970s-set latest is destined to be a seasonal classic, a film of relatable melancholy and profoundly felt humanity, held together by a trio of superb actors. 

Free with RSVP.
