For this week’s main podcast review, I am joined by Ema Sasic, Dan Bayer & Daniel Howat. Today, we are reviewing the newest film from Academy Award-winner Alexander Payne, “The Holdovers,” starring Paul Giamatti, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, and newcomer Dominic Sessa. The Christmas comedy-drama had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival, where many hailed it as a return to form for Payne and his best film since the 2004 Oscar-winning “Sideways.” Reuniting for the first time with Paul Giamatti since that film’s release, will this one find similar success with the Academy? Tune in as we discuss its awards potential, characters, writing, performances, 1970s cinematic aesthetic, and more in our review. Thank you, and enjoy!
