Paul Giamatti stars in this exclusive clip from Alexander Payne’s “The Holdovers”

Paul Giamatti stars in this exclusive clip from Alexander Payne’s new film, “The Holdovers,” which hits theaters on November 10. In the clip, Giamatti plays Paul Hunham, a curmudgeonly ancient history instructor at an elite New England prep school. During Christmas break, he is forced to remain on campus to babysit the students who have nowhere else to go.

Paul Giamatti In The Holdovers

The clip opens with Hunham sitting in his office, looking bored and miserable. He is interrupted by a knock at the door, and a student named Kevin (Dominic Sessa) walks in. Kevin is a troublemaker, but he is also intelligent and perceptive. He tells Hunham that he knows he doesn’t want to be there, but he also knows that Hunham is a good teacher. He asks Hunham to help him with his Latin homework.

Hunham reluctantly agrees to help Kevin, but he makes it clear that he is not happy about it. He tells Kevin that he is a waste of time and that he should just drop out of school. Kevin doesn’t take the bait, and he continues to work on his homework.

As the clip progresses, Hunham and Kevin start to bond. Hunham begins to see Kevin as more than just a troublemaker. He sees him as a smart and capable young man. Kevin, for his part, starts to see Hunham as more than just a teacher. He sees him as a mentor and a friend.

And ends with Hunham and Kevin sitting in Hunham’s office, talking about life and the universe. Hunham tells Kevin that he is a good kid, and that he has a lot of potential. Kevin tells Hunham that he is a good teacher, and that he is lucky to have him.

The clip is a great example of what makes Payne’s films so special. It is funny, heartwarming, and insightful. It is also a showcase for Giamatti’s talents. Giamatti is one of the best actors working today, and he is perfectly cast as the curmudgeonly Hunham.

Overall, the clip is a very promising start for “The Holdovers.” I am looking forward to seeing the rest of the film.
