Trailer Watch: Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson Stars Adam Driver as a Poet/Bus Driver

Jim Jarmusch’s latest film, Paterson, premiered to acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival in May and now, courtesy of Yahoo Movies, it’s gotten its first trailer (above).

The film stars Adam Driver (Girls, The Force Awakens) as Paterson, a poet/bus driver who lives an uneventful life with his pregnant wife (Golshifteh Farahani) in Paterson, New Jersey. In a report from Cannes, Blake Williams wrote, “It’s a remarkably free form film —so affable and comfortable in its skin —that my registration of time (‘the fourth dimension’; ‘Hmm’) dropped away for much of the first hour; I would have been perfectly satisfied to see it continue, devoid of drama or narrative, for approximately eternity.”

Paterson recently screened at the Toronto International Film Festival and will be presented as part of the New York Film Festival’s main slate. Amazon and Bleecker Street will release the drama in theaters December 28, 2016.
