Poignant romantic Drama

A movie about three lonely and slightly pathetic people who befriend each other by accident. I prefer Patricia Klarksen over Meryl Streep

Quiet, somber dramedy is an indie gem!

There isn't a bad player in "The Station Agent," and that's because there's only three main characters! Peter Dinklage heads this thoughtful little film about the powers of friendship, grieving and loneliness. Joe, Fin and Olivia all struggle with isolation, and they all have different ways of handling it. I especially enjoyed Bobby Cannavale, who stood out in last year's star studded "Blue Jasmine," as essentially the fun, talkative hot dog vendor who's looking for friends and an escape from his sick dad. Dinklage is the anchor though, and you really sympathize with his character, and truly wonder how different any of us really are from one another. This is a great movie to watch on a quiet Sunday and enjoy!

Wonderful but would be boring to tweens. It's not about them.

I rented this one because I loved The Visitor, Tom McCarthy's story of the immmigrant who came to stay. This one is equally thoughtful, poignant, memorable because it's just a slice of life story, almost a French film.
