FSJ Film Society Presents “Paterson”

By on March 7, 2017

Join us this Monday for ‘Paterson’ starring Adam Driver at the Aurora Cinema Centre.  Monday April 10th @ 7:00 pm.  The cost is $12.00 per ticket, don’t forget cash as the theatre’s ATM is not always working.  Ticket sales will stop at 6:55 pm as our film loving volunteers like to see the beginning of the film.
Synopsis:  Paterson (Adam 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 (Golshifteh 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.
