Director: Jim Jarmusch. Cast: Adam Driver, Golshifteh Farahani. 118 min. Rated R. USA/France/Germany. Drama/Romance.
A soft-spoken mild-mannered poet named Paterson, who is a bus driver in Paterson, New Jersey, sees events repeating themselves every day: he sees twins, hears repeating dialogue, and notices recurring themes (I bet that's why Jarmusch chose Adam "Driver" for the role). His wife is interested in making everything black-and-white (clothes, cabinets, curtains, cupcakes - all "c"s). What those two concepts mean, I have no clue. That's the definition of an 'art-house movie': a director throws cryptic concepts at you, and you may or may not decipher them. But everyone still raves about them. At least 96% of everyone.
