Directed by Alexander Payne, The Holdovers follows Angus Tully (Dominic Sessa), an obnoxious student at an all-boys boarding school in New England who’s forced to stay on campus when his mother can’t take him for Christmas break. Tully is a “holdover” who has to live under the rule of Paul Hunham (Paul Giamatti), a cranky classics professor, and Mary Lamb (Da’Vine Joy Randolph), the school’s cafeteria manager, for two weeks during the holidays.

The film also stars Carrie Preston, Brady Hepner, Ian Dolley, Jim Kaplan, Michael Provost, Andrew Garman, Naheem Garcia, Stephen Thorne and others.
