Affair: Q&A Screening of Paterson

When: Tuesday, November 15, 2016 @ 7:30PM

Hot Spot: LACMA Bing Theater, Los Angeles, CA

Deets: Adam Driver is the title character in writer/director Jim Jarmusch’s new film, a drama that plays like a dream parable. Paterson (Driver) is a New Jersey bus driver with an almost symbiotic attachment to his hometown—he take his work and his route very seriously; his job is to get people home. His own biggest thrill is to get home to his loving baker wife Laura (Golshifteh Farahani) and their dog, whom he take on his walks to the neighborhood bar (where the calm pooch sits pensively outside on his leash). But he leads another life as a poet whose work—deeply felt reflections on his life—is written in a notebook only Laura sees. The boundary that Paterson keeps between his writing and his life is thin—he lives like an artist, with a keen observer’s eye to all that goes on around him, and Jarmusch, working for the fourth time with cinematographer Frederick Elmes (the films they’ve made together in the past 25 years include Night on Earth, Coffee and Cigarettes, and Broken Flowers) stages the scenario so delicately and earnestly that it could be something from the pages of his protagonist’s journals. Paterson star Driver will be present to discuss the film after the screening.

Includes a conversation with actor Adam Driver
