Near the top of our most-anticipated films of the year is Jim Jarmusch‘s Paterson, his follow-up to perhaps his finest film, Only Lovers Left Alive. Led by Adam Driver, on a streak like few other actors, and Golshifteh Farahani (About Elly), it follows the former as a bus driver in New Jersey, and the latter as his creative wife. We now have the first still from the film, which will hopefully premiere at Cannes before Amazon distributes later this year.

Paterson is a funny, philosophical and moving story that only Jim can tell. We look forward to working closely with him and supporting his vision in bringing the film to life,” said Ted Hope, Head of Motion Picture Production at Amazon Studios. “Adam Driver is one of this generation’s most gifted actors. It’ll be exciting to see what he and Jim unearth as they explore the intimate and richly textured world of Paterson.”

Check out the first image below (from Mary Cybulski via Final Reel) as well as the first extensive 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 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.

Paterson will hit theaters in 2016.
