Adam Driver plays the titular character, a bus driver who lives in the NJ city of the same name. We watch his daily routine: he gets up, drives his bus (and pens his poetry), spends the evening with his devoted wife, walks the dog and drops by a local bar for a beer. This is a low-key character study from deadpan director Jim Jarmusch. While it’s always interesting, almost nothing happens…just observations of his life and love. (The dog provides some delightful lighter moments.) Driver’s soulful eyes dominate his sensitive portrayal and the final scenes are truly moving. Jarmusch’s quiet observations and poetic montages combined with quietly compelling situations create a sweetly affecting cinematic poem. (Criterion Cinemas only)
