- German comedy Toni Erdmann voted best film of 2016 by critics
- December 8, 2016
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, each a different and inspired project. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. He supports her newfound ambitions; she champions his gift for poetry.
Starring Adam Driver and Golshifteh Farahani, the film quietly observes the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.
