Exactly one week in the life of a young man named Paterson of Paterson, New Jersey is presented. He lives an extremely regimented and routinized life, that routine perhaps most vividly displayed by the fact that he is able to wake up at exactly the same time every day without an alarm. That life includes eating Cheerios for breakfast, walking to work carrying his brown bag lunch packed in his lunch pail by his wife Laura, having a casual chat with his colleague Donny before he begins his shift driving the #23 Paterson bus for the local public transit company, walking home where he straightens out the exterior mailbox which somehow during the day gets knocked crooked, eating dinner with Laura and listening to her goings-on of the day, taking Laura's English bulldog Marvin - who he would admit to himself he doesn't much like - out for a walk to his neighborhood bar where he has one and only one beer before walking home with Marvin.

As most people rated the movie between 7 and 10 then I must have a serious problem rating the movie with only 3 of 10 . All I could see is a driver who writes poems which are not that good in my opinion and wakes every morning and so on , with a GF who adores white and Black and do nothing but staying home doing her strange rituals while he works hard to bring her a Guitar she can't play . I mean it's super boring ! No story No conversations No Nothing ! but since I was raised in the Middle-East I suppose there is something missing because of my Eastern culture . I'm not saying the movie was bad , on the contrary , I was bad rating and reviewing . so please , shall anybody explain the secret of the high rating ?
