Starring Adam Driver (Girls, Star Wars: The Force Awakens), written and directed by renowned indie director Jim Jarmusch (Down by Law, Mystery Train), Paterson is set in the present in Paterson, New Jersey, and is an immersive and thoughtful tale about a bus driver whose private passion is poetry — both his own and that of his literary hero, William Carlos Williams. The predictability of his life is offset by the impulsiveness of his wife, for Paterson is a man who sees wonder in everyday things. Paterson is a meditative, almost nostalgic exploration of mindfulness honoring the artistry in each of us. (USA, 2016)
