Paterson works as a bus driver in Paterson, New Jersey. His life is regulated clockwork: up around 6am, home by 6pm, walk the dog, drop by the local tavern, down a beer, chat with the bartender. His wife is a perfect match. Laura is as even-handed and even -tempered as her husband. But there’s more to these characters’ internal lives. Paterson is a poet and Laura a repressed artistic gadfly. Each day before driving the streets, Paterson scrawls a poem in his notebook and each evening Laura welcomes him home with a new and quirky surprise.
