Our take

Following an everyman observer as he transfigures his low-key daily routine into verse, Jarmusch’s film depicts moments of epiphany and inspiration, finding the rhymes and rhythms of everyday life. A disarming, imperfectly symmetrical relationship drama, starring Adam Driver and Golshifteh Farahani.
