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.
“Poetry shows us how just a few words can be full of meaning. PATERSON, a tone poem of a film, goes about its business the same way, with simple gestures that contain a lot and work on many levels.” — Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
“Jarmusch is a next-level storyteller with an amazing ability to deliver a scene that works on face value and as a metaphor.” — Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com
