Plot: Paterson the bus driver lives and works in the city of Paterson, New Jersey. He adheres to a simple schedule but has a hidden passion for poetry. While his life is rote, by contrast his wife, Laura, lives in an ever-changing world with a different project popping up seemingly each day. He supports her ambition while she does the same for his hidden poetry. The city, the man, one week in the life of both and how each affects the other. -- Chris Kavan

Paterson is one of the most relatable, sweet, and charming movies I've seen this year. While the story is simply and straight forward on paper, but the final result is quite unique.
