If you haven't yet heard about Paterson, add it to your list of 'films to see' immediately.
Adam Driver stars in the new film from acclaimed director Jim Jarmusch (Only Lovers Left Alive) as Paterson, a hardworking bus driver in the New Jersey town of Paterson. Golshifteh Farahani co-stars in the heartfelt feature as Paterson's girlfriend Laura.
The film premiered at this year's Cannes Film Festival where it was selected to compete for the coveted Palme d'Or. While it failed to win (Ken Loach's latest I, Daniel Blake did), it did scoop the Palm Dog award for the film's memorable canine.
Jarmusch's past films include Bill Murray film Broken Flowers and the Forest Whitaker-starring Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai.
Girls actor Driver has built up an impressive list of credits over the past year having starred in films from directors including Jeff Nichols (Midnight Special) and JJ Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens). He also has a starring role in new Martin Scorsese film Silence.
Paterson is released in the UK on 25 November.
