Set in the cold New England winter, The Holdovers follows Paul Hunnam (Paul Giamatti), a grumpy professor who is forced to remain on campus during the Christmas break to supervise the students who remain over the holidays. Locked away in a school with few support staff, Hunnam is as frustrated about his situation as the students themselves, leading to tension between them. During their enforced time together, Hunnam forms an unlikely bond with troublemaker (but highly intelligent) Angus (Dominic Sessa) and Mary Lamb, (Da’Vine Joy Randolph) the school’s head cook who is grieving the loss of her son in Vietnam. This week, the crew from The Movie Podcast (Shahbaz, Daniel Baptista, Anthony Gagliardi) join us to talk about holidays without the holidays and looking for community.
