Paterson (R) 119 minutes

PATERSON --Movies (R)--Paterson (Adam Driver) is a bus driver who writes poetry, in the city of Paterson, New Jersey. Every day he adheres to a simple routine of driving his daily route, where he observes the city as it drifts across his windshield, overhearing fragments of the conversations that swirl around him. He writes poetry into a notebook, walks his dog, and has exactly one beer at a local bar. By contrast, his loving wife Laura (Golshifteh Farahani), is a dreamer who is constantly inspired by new ideas and ambitious projects, all the while championing Paterson’s gift for poetry. The history and energy of the city of Paterson is a felt presence in the film, unfolding over the course of a single week. Vanity Fair declares this a “wise, winning and moving” film from acclaimed director Jim Jarmusch, the quiet triumphs and defeats of daily life are observed, along with the poetry that’s evident in its smallest details.
