Stranger Than Paradise / Jim Jarmusch

Sara Driver was the producer of Jim Jarmusch’s second feature film, which was the one that established him as one of America’s major filmmakers. Small-time gambler Willie receives an unexpected visit from his Hungarian cousin Eva, who plans to stay with him for ten days. At first Willie balks at the prospect, but when Eva shoplifts a packet of cigarettes and a TV dinner from the corner store for him, Willy begins to reconsider. Willie, Eva and Willie’s bosom buddy Eddie begin to hang out until it’s time for Eva to go to Cleveland to live with an aunt. A few months later, after winning $600 in a poker game, Willie and Eddie decide to go to Ohio to visit Eva. But Cleveland in the heart of winter hasn’t much to offer, and so the three of them decide to drive down to Florida, only to discover that, besides the warm weather, everything else is pretty much the same.
