Paterson is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey. Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: he drives his bus, observing the city and overhearing fragments of conversation; he writes poetry; he walks his dog; he goes to the same bar to drink a beer; he goes home to his wife Laura.

MUBI's take

Following an everyman observer as he transforms and transfigures his low-key life into verse, Jarmusch’s film depicts moments of epiphany and inspiration, finding the rhymes and rhythms of everyday life. An imperfectly symmetrical relationship drama, starring Adam Driver and Golshifteh Farahani.
