Paterson (Adam Driver) 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 (Golshifteh Farahani). By contrast, Laura’s world is ever changing. New dreams come to her almost daily. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. He supports her newfound ambitions; she champions his gift for poetry.

"Jarmusch has created a small miracle of a film, one that is both intellectually dazzling and emotionally provocative."
- David Wiegand, San Francisco Chronicle
"Like many of Jarmusch's best films, this keeps surprising us with its minimal, witty inflections, at once epic and small-scale."
- Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Paterson himself is deathly allergic to pretension, and the film inhabits his sensibility. It's A Portrait Of The Artist As A Working-Class Stiff, arguing for the mundane beauty of all our lives."
- Mike D'Angelo, AV Club
"A lovely fable about the fragile, fruitful and occasionally fraught relationship between creativity and everyday life."
- Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"A mild-mannered, almost startlingly undramatic work that offers discreet pleasures to longtime fans of the New York indie-scene veteran, who can always be counted on to go his own way."
- Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
"Carried by an appropriately low-key Adam Driver and Jarmusch's casual genius for capturing offhand remarks, Paterson is his most absorbing character study since "Broken Flowers" -- and far more grounded in real life. There's no context necessary to recognize it as his most personal work."
- Eric Kohn, Indiewire
"How Jarmusch takes this match-stick house of nothings and fills it with such calm and wisdom is a mystery with only one real answer: he’s an artist."
- Tim Robey, The Telegraph
"[Adam] Driver's performance as an uncertain man getting through the day-to-day prosaic, quietly buoyed by passion and artistic commitment, is exquisite."
- Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"Paterson is easily one of Jarmusch's most accomplished films. He portrays the life of the mind and the workings of the creative soul as a kind of secret love affair, a deep, hidden well inside the most ordinary, mundane existence."
- Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Viewers are treated to a portrait of romantic devotion, contentment and vocation all the more affecting for being so utterly, unapologetically heartfelt."
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
