Forced to remain on campus over Christmas break to look after students with nowhere to go, a curmudgeonly English teacher (Paul Giamatti) develops an unlikely friendship with a troubled “holdover” and the school’s head cook. This warm holiday dramedy from the director of Sideways was the runner-up for the People’s Choice Award at the 2023 Toronto International Film Festival.
