About

The Holdouts follows our hero, Kevin (played by Kevin Corrigan, Grounded for Life and The Getdown), a working class guy living where the working class is no longer welcome: New York City. He is the lone soldier in a war to save his beloved, vanishing New York—the corner pub, the 24-hour bodega, the Jewish family deli, the fourth-floor walk-up, the old neighborhood—and enlists the help of his roommate (a NYC transplant who loves Starbucks) to join him in his stand against the “enemy.”

Kevin’s rent-controlled apartment (and childhood home) is the last one left in a vacant building ready to be leveled for condos. But when his landlord makes a lucrative offer to buy him out, Kevin must decide whether to sell out and start a new life elsewhere or stand his ground and take on the establishment.

The Holdouts is a comedy about New Yorkers who can’t afford to live in New York anymore - that disappearing, forgotten generation of New Yorkers trying to survive in a city that no longer has a place for them, but has plenty of room for Citi Bikes. Also starring Jayce Bartok, Michael Buscemi, and Deirdre O'Connell (The PathThe Affair).
