At last: a movie starring a dwarf who isn't a sidekick, isn't a leprechaun and doesn't spew 'wisecracks' such as, "Can you lend me a dime, I'm a little short. Hur hur hur!" Most certainly not. The Station Agent revolves around Finbar McBride, a quiet train enthusiast who moves into a little place in small-town America. A touching friendship develops with two people who don't stare at him or take photos and smile as if he's never been patronised before: Joe and Olivia. And that's pretty much it. But the beauty of The Station Agent lies in its delicacy: an entire friendship is conveyed in detail without any in-your-face Hollywoodisms to make sure you're having a good time. The characters on display here are- refreshingly- ones you will actually care about. There are few enormous dramatic events that string this together, just deep relationships between three oddball, likeable characters and a very slow plot. With some of the finest acting you'll see all year, we've finally found a film that needs only human emotions to make it memorable. This is a low-budget indie flick done incredibly well: don't miss out.
