May December Holdovers
We’ve got a Payne/Haynes double feature on this episode with reviews of THE HOLDOVERS & MAY DECEMBER. Alexander Payne’s latest film, THE HOLDOVERS starring Paul Giamatti & DaVine Joy Randolph, tells the story of a cranky history teacher forced to remain on a prep school campus over the holidays with students who have no place to go. Todd Haynes’ MAY DECEMBER stars Natalie Portman, Julianne Moore & Charles Melton in a story that takes place twenty years after a couple’s notorious tabloid romance. Portman plays an actress who visits the couple to do research for a film about their past.
