Fin McBride (Dinklage), a loner with a passion for trains, inherits an abandoned train station in the middle of nowhere - a place that suits him just fine because all he wants is to be alone. Soon after moving in, he discovers his isolated depot is more like Grand Central Station! There's Olivia (Clarkson), a distracted and troubled artist, and Joe (Cannavale), a friendly Cuban with an insatiable hunger for conversation. With absolutely nothing in common, they find their isolated lives coming together in a friendship none of them could foresee...

Winner of three awards at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival, 'The Station Agent' also scooped a BAFTA for Best Original Screenplay.

Buy this film! If you love small, odd and thoughtful movies, 'The Station Agent' is for you. You will watch thinking 'what the heck have I done', but by the end of this movie you will be smiling and content having had an insight into the beautiful oddity of life and movie making to boot! Just try it, and then I recommend 'Sideways', 'Tideland' and 'Bagdad Cafe'. Enjoy the world of 'small' movies. They blow the box office hits out of the water!!!

If Play.com keep the price so cheap, you shouldn't even think twice, buy this brilliant film now. If you love films like Sideways, Little Miss Sunshine and Swingers, this is the film for you. It's not trying to impress you, it simply is being what it is. A wonderful little story, a snapshot of 3 characters lives. An unusual cocktail of characters which will leave you feelin' touched, amused and feelin' good inside. Perfect film to watch on a midweek night around 9pm when there's nothing on the telly and you think it's too late to put on a film - well it's not, this film is less than 90 minutes and a great watch before lights out!

 A slice-of-life diamond

If you loved movies like Garden state, Trees lounge, What's eating Gilbert Grape, Smoke, or even Sideways, then Station agent is definitively for you. It's a slice-of-life film about three different people with their joys and struggles. The plot becomes secondary to the main characters and the sharp dialogue. Overall Station agent is a true feel-good-movie, a hidden diamond that craves for being discovered.

 Dwarves retire early. Common fact.

I caught this film on telly not long back, and had to buy it. Mainly because I realised the subtlety of the script could not be appreciated at first viewing. Okay, so it's not the deepest film you'll ever watch, but that's a good thing. On the other hand it's not sentimental schmalz . It is a genuine insight into everyone's differences, be it emotional, physical or just what makes each of us unique. Trust me, this will be a fiver well spent.

 what a gem!

couldn't find anything else to watch when the BBC screened this,so i thought 'what the hell',and recorded it as i thought it might be interesting,and i'm so glad i did! a simple storyline,great quirky characters who are all so different,but become great friends.this is a wonderful,uplifting feelgood film that is so much better than some of the dross masquerading as entertainment these days.it only lasts an hour and a half,but it leaves you wanting much more.that for me is the sign of a great film,and for £5.99 i will be adding it to my collection,and i recommend anyone to do the same.
