From acclaimed director Alexander Payne, The Holdovers follows a curmudgeonly instructor 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, and with the school’s head cook, who has just lost a son in Vietnam.

Critics Reviews:

  • “The format may be unsurprising but there is nothing unsurprising about just how good and enjoyable this is… this is the kind of bittersweet, character-dialogue driven piece they just don't do anymore.” – Mark Kermode (Kermode and Mayo's Take (YouTube))
  • “There’s a bracingly astringent bleakness under its surface layer of melancholy humour; a biting, sharp edge that counters the occasional lurch towards sentimentality.” – Wendy Ide (Observer (UK))
  • The Holdovers emerges as a testament to Payne's unique storytelling ability, offering a grownup drama for intelligent audiences, inviting a nuanced exploration of the complexities of human relationships against the backdrop of cruel classist rigidity.” – Linda Marric (HeyUGuys)
