Hull Independent Cinema presents: Paterson
Jim Jarmusch | 2016 | USA / France / Germany | Cert 15 | 118 mins
Paterson is a New Jersey bus driver with a hidden talent for writing poetry. Following the same routine each day, Paterson uses his observations while driving as inspiration for his writing.
Paterson (Adam Driver) 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 (Golshifteh Farahani). By contrast, Laura’s world is ever changing. New dreams come to her almost daily, each a different and inspired project. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. He supports her newfound ambitions; she champions his gift for poetry.
Nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes Film Festival.
“A lovely fable about the fragile, fruitful and occasionally fraught relationship between creativity and everyday life.” Geoff Andrew, Time Out
