Director: Jim Jarmusch, USA / Germany / France 2016, 115 mins, 15
“The movie is about the conviction that if you can live at least part of your life breathing poetry you can make your life more worthwhile.” RogerEbert.com
Jim Jarmusch's latest quiet masterpiece is the simple story of a happy life. Paterson loves his beautiful, lively wife, his job as a bus driver and—not always—their idiosyncratic dog Marvin. And Paterson writes the most tender poems about all this. A real fairy tale, attentive, funny and deeply human.
"Jim Jarmusch’s new film…is a delight: a prose-poem of gentle comic humility and acceptance of life." Guardian
