Acclaimed filmmaker Jim Jarmusch’s newest feature is the story of bus driver and aspiring poet, Paterson (Adam Driver, HBO’s Girls, Silence), who shares a name with his city of residence, Paterson, NJ. Everyday Paterson adheres to the same routine: he drives his daily route, absorbing snippets of conversations among his passengers; he writes poetry in his notebook between stops; he walks his dog; he has a beer after work; he goes home to his wife, Laura (Golshifteh Farahani, About Elly), who’s life is comparatively less regimented. He supports her newfound ambitions; she champions his gift for poetry. Their lives seem uncomplicated. In Paterson, Jarmusch constructs a deceptively simple portrait of quiet people in a quiet city and the poetry that appears within the details of daily life.
