Paterson
France/Germany/USA  2016  113mins  English language

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, 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. © Bleeker Street Media

“Pure, filmic poetry… Jim Jarmusch’s latest film is deceptively rich with its elements in perfect balance.” - Donald Clarke, Irish Times

“A delight: a prose-poem of gentle comic humility and acceptance of life.” - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

The Childhood of a Leader

UK/France/Hungary  2015  115mins  Language: French (with English subtitles), English

A child’s angelic face conceals a budding sociopath in the audacious, senses-shattering feature debut from actor Brady Corbet. A powerhouse international cast led by Robert Pattinson and Bérénice Bejo (The Artist) headlines this dark domestic nightmare. Set amidst the turmoil of World War I and its aftermath, it follows the young son of an American diplomat living in France as he learns to manipulate the adults around him - a monstrous coming of age that ominously parallels the rising tide of Fascism in Europe. A stylistically fearless tour-de-force, The Childhood of a Leader reaches fever-pitch delirium thanks to ravishing cinematography and a thunderous score by legendary, boundary-pushing musician Scott Walker. - © IFC Films

“[A] bold and brilliant debut that heralds a major new talent.”

 - Hilary A White, Sunday Independent

“A masterpiece.” - The Examiner    “A stunning debut.” - Cinevue

“…steely, sinister and utterly gripping…What an exciting debut.” - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
