“The Holdovers” had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival, where it received some of Alexander Payne’s best reviews since “Sideways.” It later screened at the Toronto International Film Festival to similar acclaim and was the runner-up for the Toronto People’s Choice Award. Re-uniting Paul Giamatti with Payne, the film is one of the rare films from Payne that neither he nor his collaborator Jim Taylor wrote together. Screenwriter David Hemingson was kind enough to spend a few moments speaking with us about the script, how he came on board the project, working with Payne, and more. Please be sure to check out the film, which is now playing in limited release and will expand on November 10th from Focus Features. Thank you, and enjoy!
