Paterson

Writer-director Jim Jarmusch often explores existential themes, but theyve perhaps never been so beautifully unadorned as they are in Paterson, a deceptively modest character piece thats profound and moving while remaining grounded in the everyday. Observing a bus driver (played with incredible grace by Adam Driver) over eight days, the movie turns the tiny details of its protagonists life into a deeply felt consideration of marriage, love, compromise and the casual oddities inherent in being alive... Living with his wife Laura (Golshifteh Farahani), a cupcake chef who dreams of becoming a country music star, Paterson (who just so happens to live in Paterson, New Jersey) goes through his daily routine, which includes jotting down some lines for his latest poem and stopping by his favorite bar every night... Neither romanticizing Patersons ordinary life nor patronisingly lamenting it, Jarmusch crafts a wonderfully precise portrait thats both specific and universal.  Tim Grierson, Screendaily
