About the Film

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).

From extraordinary international cinema to Hollywood’s latest; must-see American indies to groundbreaking documentaries, big screen experiences daily at The Main Cinema, your neighborhood nonprofit movie theater.
