Le film montre sept journées de la vie de Paterson, chauffeur de bus vivant à Paterson, ville ouvrière du New Jersey. Il mène une vie réglée, paisible, harmonieuse. Il se lève sans réveil-matin, entre 6 h 11 et 6 h 15 (en réalité jusqu'à 6 h 30). Il conduit son bus, observant l'animation des rues, captant amusé les conversations de ses passagers... et voit des jumeaux partout. Il déjeune sur un banc, face au pont Chasm et aux chutes de la rivière Passaic. Il profite de cette pause pour écrire des vers dans son carnet secret. Car il rédige des poèmes inspirés de sa vie et de ses rencontres. Il décèle de la poésie dans la routine, dans les rituels et les décors, dans la banalité de menus incidents, dans les paroles des humains qu'il côtoie. Ses vers libres chantent « les petits riens du quotidien, des choses ordinaires comme ces boîtes d'allumettes désuètes qui traînent sur le bar de sa cuisine. » Le soir, Paterson retrouve sa maison, sa compagne Laura. Il va promener leur bouledogue, s'arrête dans un bar où il croise des amis et boit une bière.

The story begins in Kingston, New York where Emily Parris (Kara Hayward) decides to get back at her fellow classmate, Mary Warren (Georgie Henley), for ruining her audition for a school play. While Mary, forced by the theatre teacher, holds her audition, Emily steals Mary's phone and publishes all of Mary's text on her blog. Mary then retaliates by calling Emily a blog whore in front of the whole school, which landed both girls in the guidance counselor, Gordy Gambhir's (Kal Penn) office. Later that night, Mary writes on her Facebook wall that she will be taking a vow of silence, and afterwards deletes her Facebook and all other social media accounts. This is when Mary gets the idea to create the Sisterhood, and the first members she recruits are Catherine Huang (Willa Cuthrell) and Lavinia Hall (Olivia DeJonge). Together, the three girls venture out into the night, disappearing into the forest by the city border, and begin their ritual.

In September 1965, on a New England island called New Penzance, 12-year-old orphan Sam Shakusky is attending Camp Ivanhoe, a Khaki Scout summer camp led by Scoutmaster Randy Ward. Suzy Bishop, also 12, lives on the island with her parents, Walt and Laura, both attorneys, and her three younger brothers in a house called Summer's End. Sam and Suzy, both introverted, intelligent and mature for their age, met in the summer of 1964 during a church performance of Noye's Fludde and have been pen pals since then. Having fallen in love over the course of their correspondence, they have made a secret pact to reunite and run away together. Sam brings camping equipment, and Suzy brings her binoculars, six books, her kitten, and her brother's battery-powered record player. They hike, camp and fish together in the wilderness with the goal of reaching a secluded cove on the island. They are confronted by a group of Khaki Scouts who try to capture them, and during the resulting altercation, Suzy injures one of the Scouts with scissors and Camp Ivanhoe's dog is killed by a stray shot from a bow and arrow wielded by one of the Scouts. The Scouts flee and Sam and Suzy hike to the cove which they name Moonrise Kingdom. They set up camp and go swimming. Later, while drying off, they begin dancing to Françoise Hardy in their underwear. As the romantic tension between them grows, they kiss repeatedly.
