Watch Adam Driver in the UK trailer for Paterson



Featuring a career-best performance from Adam Driver (GIRLS, STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS), the film tells the story of the titular Paterson, a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey. A budding but unassuming poet, Paterson spends his days following a simple routine with little need for deviation, all the while taking inspiration from the beautiful simplicities of the everyday.

Paterson is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey – they share the name. Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: he drives his daily route, observing the city as it drifts across his windshield and overhearing fragments of conversation swirling around him; he writes poetry into a notebook; he walks his dog; he stops in a bar and drinks exactly one beer; he goes home to his wife, Laura. By contrast, Laura’s world is ever changing. New dreams come to her almost daily. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. He supports her newfound ambitions; she champions his gift for poetry. The film quietly observes the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.

Directed by Jim Jarmusch, the film stars Adam Driver, Golshifteh Farahani, Barry Shabaka Henley, Chasten Harmon, William Jackson Harper, and Masatoshi Nagase.

Francesco saw the film at this years London Film Festival. He said that, “Paterson is nothing short of a cinematic gem.”
