Alexander Payne / USA 2023 / 123 min / Cert 15 Alexander Payne, who won an Oscar for Sideways in 2004, pairs up again with Paul Giamatti, who plays Paul, a history teacher at an expensive boarding school and very much a loner. He reluctantly becomes a ‘holdover’, an adult tasked with overseeing students who have nowhere to go over the Christmas vacation. Angus, a smart yet rebellious teen (newcomer Dominic Sessa) is his only charge. The pair spend the holiday with cafeteria manager Mary, a grieving mother (played magnificently by Da’Vine Joy Randolph). The three are an unlikely fit, but a subtle script avoids the twin pitfalls of lengthy monologues and sentimentality.
