When her mother falls ill under mysterious circumstances, young Eve is sent to live with her estranged father’s relatives in Calais.

dir. Jim Jarmusch
USA | 2016 | NC16 | 118 mins

Paterson is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey. Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: he drives his daily route, observing the city and overhearing fragments of conversation around him; he writes poetry; he walks his dog; he stops in a bar and drinks exactly one beer. He goes home to his wife, Laura. By contrast, Laura’s world is ever changing. New dreams come to her almost daily. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. The quiet triumphs and defeats of daily life are observed.

Christian is the curator of a contemporary art museum, a divorced but devoted father of two who supports good causes. His next show is “The Square”, an installation which invites passersby to altruism. But sometimes, it is difficult to live up to your own ideals: Christian’s foolish response to the theft of his phone drags him into shameful situations. Meanwhile, the museum’s PR agency has created an unexpected campaign for “The Square”. The response is overblown and sends the museum into an existential crisis.
