About the Movie

Paterson (Adam Driver) is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey - they share the name. Every day, he adheres to a simple routine of driving his daily route, where he observes the city as it drifts across his windshield, overhearing fragments of the conversations that swirl around him. He writes poetry into a notebook, walks his dog, and has exactly one beer at a local bar. By contrast, his loving wife Laura (Golshifteh Farahani), is a dreamer who is constantly inspired by new ideas and ambitious projects, all the while championing Paterson’s gift for poetry. The history and energy of the City of Paterson is a felt presence in the film, and its simple structure unfolds over the course of a single week. In this “wise, winning… and moving” (Vanity Fair) film from acclaimed director Jim Jarmusch, the quiet triumphs and defeats of daily life are observed, along with the poetry that’s evident in its smallest details.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Driver is turning out to be one of the finest actors of the moment, an understated star with a great, non-movie-star face. – Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine, Jan 12, 2017

Fresh: Jarmusch has created a small miracle of a film, one that is both intellectually dazzling and emotionally provocative. – David Wiegand, San Francisco Chronicle, Jan 5, 2017

Fresh: I think Jarmusch has actually remade "Groundhog Day" as a work of spiritual ecstasy. I also think Paterson the man may be a Zen Ralph Kramden. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Jan 19, 2017

Fresh: Jim Jarmusch's latest has moments of beauty that help compensate for a slightly static narrative. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Jan 26, 2017

Wonderful Movie

I really enjoyed it and great performances.

A real snoozer.

Don't waste your money. This movie will leave you walking out of the room and not caring if you miss a scene or two. Just watch the trailer and you will get a sense what the movie has to offer without having to endure the whole thing.


This movie is different from what you're used to see. Very creative, very deep, a great mix of emotions, full of symbolism and non-straight-forward things (if that makes sense).
