What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Paterson is a comedy-drama by indie filmmaker Jim Jarmusch; it's slow and meditative and focused on the rhythms of life, but it's also funny and touching. It's a great movie, though probably a little out of the mainstream and not for every taste. It features some infrequent strong language, including uses of "f--k," "motherf----r," "s--t," "ass," and more. The main couple is intimate with one another with lots of kissing, on lips as well as back and shoulders. The woman appears to sleep naked, and her skin is visible under the sheets, but nothing sensitive is shown. The main character stops by a local bar every night and sips at a beer; other social drinking is shown. A secondary character brandishes a gun that turns out to be a toy. He points it at a woman, and at himself, and another man tackles him and takes it.
