Paterson is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey — they share the name. He’s also a poet, recording his daily observations and thoughts in the form of beautiful prose.

By contrast, Laura’s world is ever-changing, with new projects and ideas striking her daily. During the course of one fateful week, Paterson experiences both triumph and disaster, and finds inspiration from the most unlikely source. A sublime new film from Jim Jarmusch (Only Lovers Left Alive), starring Adam Driver (Star Wars: Force Awakens) and Golshifteh Farahani (Rosewater).
