3 New Clips from Jim Jarmusch Movie ‘Paterson’

Adam Driver

Amazon Studios has released the first three clips from Jim Jarmusch‘s next movie Paterson, described as a wry comedy, which is set to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this month.

Starring Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Golshifteh Farahani (Body of Lies), the film follows the former as the titular bus driver, and the latter as his creative wife, with Kara Hayward and Sterling Jerins rounding out the cast.

Amazon will release it in theaters later this year. Check out the clips and a new batch of images below.

Jesus, never thought a place like Paterson, NJ could have something that beautiful.

Paterson (played by Driver) 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 (played by Farahani). 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 secret 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. The quiet triumphs and defeats of daily life are observed, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.

I feel Jarmisch tried to wreck Driver here.
