Paterson (2007) – Cert 15
Corrie Film Club’s March showing is Jim Jarmusch’s gentle film Paterson starring Adam Driver giving a wonderful performance in the title role.
Paterson is a hardworking bus driver in Paterson, New Jersey, who follows the same routine every day. He observes the city and listens to fragments of conversations while picking up and dropping off his passengers.
Paterson also writes heartfelt poems in a notebook, walks his dog and drinks one beer in a bar after his shift is over.
Waiting for him at home is Laura, his beloved wife who champions his gift for writing, runs a cupcake business and dreams of being a country and western star.
This film is a quiet and moving observation on the triumphs and defeats of daily life and the poetry evident in its smallest details. Highly recommended.
All are welcome at the showing of the film tomorrow (Sunday) at 8pm in Corrie and Sannox village hall.
