London film premieres

The Holdovers London film premiere 2023

Nobody likes teacher Paul Hunham (Giamatti) -- not his students, not his fellow faculty, not the headmaster, who all find his pomposity and rigidity exasperating. With no family and nowhere to go over Christmas holiday in 1970, Paul remains at school to supervise students unable to journey home. After a few days, only one student holdover remains -- a trouble-making 15-year-old named Angus, a good student whose bad behavior always threatens to get him expelled. Joining Paul and Angus is head cook Mary (Randolph)-an African American woman who caters to sons of privilege and whose own son was recently lost in Vietnam. These three very different shipwrecked people form an unlikely Christmas family sharing comic misadventures during two very snowy weeks in New England. The real journey is how they help one another understand that they are not beholden to their past-they can choose their own futures.

Did you know ... ?

  1. The entire film was shot in real, practical locations. No sets or soundstages were used.
  2. The second Alexander Payne film where neither him nor frequent collaborator Jim Taylor share a screenwriting credit. The first was Nebraska (2013).
  3. Both Da'Vine Joy Randolph (Mary) and Paul Giamatti (Paul) are graduates of the prestigious Yale School of Drama (now known as the David Geffen School of Drama at Yale University). Giamatti received his MFA there in 1994, and Randolph in 2011. Giamatti is also a son of A. Bartlett Giamatti, who was president of Yale from 1978 to 1986.
  4. Focus Features bought worldwide rights for the film for $30 million after screening for buyers at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2022. It is the biggest sale to ever happen at the festival, despite it not being on the roster that year.
  5. Alexander Payne and Paul Giamatti marks as the second partnership between them after Sideways (2004).
  6. The film had its international premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2023, one year after it was sold for $30 million at last year's festival during a buyers screening.
  7. There is a scene where Paul is taking to a man in a Santa Claus suit about the historical inaccuracy of the suit, as well as the myth of Santa's existence. Paul Giamatti (who plays Paul) previously played Santa Claus in Fred Claus (2007).
  8. The first Alexander Payne film since About Schmidt not to have cinematography by frequent collaborator Phedon Papamichael.
  9. Even though the movie features a heavy film look reminiscent of the 1970s, the movie was entirely shot digitally on the ARRI Alexa Mini. All the hallmarks of celluloid film like the film grain, halation, dirt, and gate weave were added in post-production.
