The Station Agent

Have you ever like a movie so much that you wish it would never ended? That is how I feel when watching The Station Agent. I feel like I was part of the characters. The story is basically about Finbar McBride (Peter Dinklage) who is a dwarf and a loner. The only thing that interests him is train. Because of his height, people usually stare, pry or make fun of him; therefore, he just wants to live alone. Although he tries to be alone, he couldn’t shut out Joe (Bobby Cannavle) who “won’t take no for an answer” and Olivia (Patricia Clarkson) who almost ran him over twice. Three people with three different circumstances but eventually become close friends. The interaction between these three characters is what makes the film engaging. The Station Agent is a beautiful work of art with some laughter, emotional and memorable moments through out the film. Every character gave natural performances of everyday life, which makes the film so realistic. The Station Agent is highly enjoyable. This is a film not to be missed.
