Adam Driver does a lot of pondering in new Paterson images
What’s one to do after playing Kylo Ren in STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS? For the actor who played the big baddie, Adam Driver, the answer is simple: drive a bus. That's exactly what he’s doing in his new movie, PATERSON, and you can see for yourself in these new images.
The Playlist got ahold of the pics from the new indie drama from Jim Jarmusch, which was met with rave reviews coming out of Cannes and was nominated for their most prestigious prize, the Palme d’Or. In the new images we see Driver doing a lot of pondering, sitting down and walking his dog, which is appropriate given the film’s synopsis:
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 Golshifteh 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.
Behold the simplicity below!
PATERSON stars Adam Driver and Golshifteh Farahani and is currently set for a December 28 release.
