On the 343rd episode of Piecing It Together, Noah Gittell joins me to talk about The Holdovers. Alexander Payne reunites with Paul Giamatti for an infectuous cranky curmudgeon story with a heavy 70s vibe. Puzzle pieces include A Man Called Otto, The Breakfast Club, Licorice Pizza and Good Will Hunting.

As always, SPOILER ALERT for The Holdovers and the movies we discuss!

Written by David Hemingson

Directed by Alexander Payne
