Nominated for five Oscar awards (including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Original Screenplay) The Holdovers is a comedy drama about three lonely, shipwrecked people at a New England boarding school over a very snowy holiday break in 1970.

Paul Giamatti is Paul Hunham, a grouchy professor of ancient history who is universally disliked by students and school and ends up spending the holiday with Mary Lamb (Da’Vine Joy Randolph) the head cook of the school whose only child Curtis was killed in Vietnam and Angus Tully (Dominic Sessa in his film debut), a student at the school - a smart, damaged, troublemaker but a good kid underneath who’s just trying to make his way.

Left to their own devices in the empty school, there are adventures, a little calamity and finally, a semblance of family.
