PATERSON

OK, couldn’t get to sleep last night and I’m up for work this morning.
Thankfully not in until 10am so didn’t have to get up until 8.
I could have had another hour but I was bursting to blog!!

Me and the Hubster had an unexpected trip to London yesterday after I won tickets for a preview showing of Adam Driver’s new movie ‘Paterson’.

There’s no way I can put this without sounding completely biased but the film is AMAZING!!
It’s story is beautifully simple. A complete opposite of all the summer blockbusters and mega hyped movies we get bombarded with.
It gently rolls along at a nice pace and gives us a glimpse of a week in the life of Paterson, a bus driver from Paterson, New Jersey. A quiet and unimposing man with a simple life who writes poetry in his spare time. He has a very quirky partner and a dog called Marvin.
Marvin steels the show at times.
It is both funny and a little heart wrenching. Paterson is a very quiet man and at times seems very lonely and sad.
It sounds like a dull story but it’s anything but! It’s honest, and funny and you will come out with a smile on your face.
I honestly didn’t think my hubby was going to like it but I couldn’t have been more wrong. He loved it too!

I highly recommend going to see it when it gets released on November 25th!!

NOW, on to the even more excting bit.
After the film there was a half hour Q+A with Adam himself!!

He is also amazing!
Very humble. Did his best to answer questions as fully as he could. Referred to himself jokingly on several occasions as a ‘diva’. If you’re asking me to remember anymore it’s not going to work my brain is mush!!
Oh yes, he did the usual ‘I’m too big for this chair’ pose and wrapped his feet around the legs and hunched up.

AMAZING evening.
And now I have to go to work.
I will blog about the day in more detail later. I just wanted to get the review out this morning.
