The film critics are howling their praise of Paterson, Jim Jarmusch’s latest film about a working-class poet (Adam Driver) in a small New Jersey town who practices his craft amidst the quiet magic of everyday life.
This film premiered in Cannes last May – where its canine actor the late English bulldog Nellie was given the Palm Dog award posthumously.
As Producer Carter Logan told the Hollywood Reporter: “She was an incredible performer. We looked at a lot of tape, and we saw her, we knew she was the one. She had a unique voice and was able to express herself, and her performance as the male Marvin was a unique and transformative performance.”
Go see the movie. Woof.
