Oh it’s a good day to be a Jim Jarmusch fan. First came the trailer for The Stooges doc Gimme Danger, and now Yahoo! Movies has debuted a trailer for filmmaker’s latest small-scale drama Paterson.

Starring Adam Driver and Golshifteh Farahani, the film premiered earlier this year at Cannes to glowing reviews. Co-starring Barry Shabaka Henley, Chasten Harmon, William Jackson Harper and Masatoshi Nagase, Paterson will be released by Amazon and Bleecker Street on December 28.

Check out the first official trailer below.

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.

The film quietly observes the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.
