Cate Blanchett plays both roles in this scene about two cousins in different financial positions.
The indulgence of addictions and obsessions frequently brings out the poetry in us (think Coleridge on opium). Jim Jarmusch filmed people known for taking artistic license here and there (Bill Murray, Steve Buscemi, Jack and Meg White, Cate Blanchett, Iggy Pop and many more) while they indulged in two of their favorite--and legal--addictions: coffee and cigarettes. What he got was pure genius.
