The Holdovers (15)

A grumpy instructor forms an unexpected bond with a troubled student during the Christmas break.

From acclaimed director Alexander Payner, 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.

Running time: 2h 13m
