Paterson is a bus driver who lives in the town of Paterson, New Jersey – he and the city share the same name. Every day Paterson lives a simple routine: he drives the daily route, observes the city, hears fragments of conversations, writes poetry in a notebook, walks with the dog, drinks a beer in the usual bar, and finally returns home to his wife Laura . She, in contrast, lives in a world that always changes, with new daily dreams. They love each other. It supports it in the attainment of new ambitions, it celebrates in it the gift of poetry. “Paterson,” the film, watches the triumphs and defeats of daily life with poetry evident in the smallest details.
