Comedy, Drama

Set in the present in Paterson, New Jersey, this is a tale about a bus driver and poet.

The critical consensus

Quiet, thoughtful and deeply human, this is one of Jarmusch’s finest and features Adam Driver’s best performance yet — although you do risk coming out with a new affection for modernist poetry.

****(*)Helen O'Hara, Empire Online, 21/11/2016

A perfectly paced and spacious vehicle that finds sublime meaning amid routine.

*****Sophie Monks Kaufman, Little White Lies, 22/11/2016

This a quiet film but ultimately a very rewarding one.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 24/11/2016

Driver’s delicate performance as a poetic bus driver in Jim Jarmusch’s delightfully unironic film is far, far away from his Star Wars persona.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 24/11/2016

Paterson offers a modest, slow-burning fanfare for the common man.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 25/11/2016

Adam Driver stars as a bus-driving poet in a Jim Jarmusch drama suffering from self-regard.
