DVD 18730 – Paterson is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey – they share the same name. Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: he drives his daily route, observing the city; he writes poetry into a notebook; he walks his dog. By contrast, his wife Laura’s world is ever changing. He supports her newfound ambitions; she champions his gift for poetry. The film quietly observes the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.
