Paterson

NAME OF FILM: PATERSON

DIRECTOR(S): Jim Jarmusch

STARRING: Adam Driver, Golshifteh Farahani and Helen-Jean Arthur

GENRE: Comedy Film

SYNOPSIS: 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; he writes poetry into a notebook; 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. The film quietly observes the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.
