Event Details

Oscar-nominated comedy 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 won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her performance, stating in her acceptance speech:
“For so long I have always wanted to be different and now I realise I just needed to be myself, and I thank you for seeing me,” she said.

Randolph dominated this year’s awards season with a Golden Globe, a Critics Choice Award, a BAFTA and a Screen Actors Guild Award for her role as the cafeteria manager at the New England school – so come see for yourself her winning performance!
