"Toa Fraser's sensitive direction of this deceptively challenging and surprisingly satisfying film, keeps the tone perfectly balanced in the manner of perhaps an eccentric English tale with dashes of humour and pathos." Andrew L. Urban - Urban Cinefile

Paterson 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. By contrast, Laura's world is ever changing. New dreams come to her almost daily. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. 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.
Rotten Tomatoes Critics Consensus: Paterson adds another refreshingly unvarnished entry to Jim Jarmusch's filmography -- and another outstanding performance to Adam Driver's career credits.

An engrossing narrative on a grand scale
From the author of "The Whale Rider", a tale of family rivalry and reconciliation, set against the stunning backdrop of rural New Zealand in the 1960s.
Writers:John Collee (screenplay), Witi Ihimaera (novel)
Stars:Temuera Morrison, Akuhata Keefe, Nancy Brunning
Mahana is the story of a powerful rivalry between two Maori families who make their living as shearers around Gisborne, on the east coast of the north island, in the early 1960s. In the history of Maori films, it is a landmark – it succeeds as an engrossing narrative on a grand scale about quotidian lives. It's neither paean to Maori spirituality (although there is a little of that), nor a film about the white oppression of Maori culture (although there's a little of that too). So much for what it isn't. What it is is a complete and convincing world, rooted in its own time and soil and way of thinking.

"The film is distinguished by magnificent photography by Jeanne Lapoirie and by the insightful screenplay by the director and Laurette Polmanss. It's enjoying a very limited cinema release, but is well worth checking out."
