See Adam Driver in the poster for Jim Jarmusch's upcoming drama Paterson
News of a film from director Jim Jarmusch (Stranger Than Paradise, Dead Man, Broken Flowers, Only Lovers Left Alive) is always a cause for celebration. His newest is called Paterson, and the title stands for both the New Jersey town where the movie takes place and the name of a quiet bus driver, played by Adam Driver.
But the film’s first poster, which you can see exclusively below, doesn’t feature any public transportation vehicles. Paterson is also a daydreamer and a poet. Here we see him sleeping in bed next to his wife, Laura (Golshifteh Farahani from Body of Lies), amid rays of sunlight and a notebook full of scribbled words. The drama, which takes place over a week in their lives, is ripe with Jarmusch’s wry, idiosyncratic observations about how we all bumpily make our way in the world.
Paterson is currently screening at the Toronto International Film Festival and opens in theaters on Dec 28. Check out the poster below.
