There isn't a character, location or situation in The Station Agent that could exist anywhere other than in a screenplay.

Peter Dinklage details Fin?s solitude in single glances, but his countenance also warms to eventual friendship. It?s an attenuated, reserved, realistic performance ? bolstered when we learn Fin is silent because shouting only summons repressed rage.

...a sweet art film that is unapologetic as it is memorable. Peter Dinklage's performance is poetic and pure as any you will ever observe on screen or off.

...watching these friends interact is what the movie is about, not what they look like, not what they do, not what they talk about, but how they feel toward one another.

Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)

The movie has humor that's not derived from ridicule and an appeal based on the idea that relationships can be a comforting buffer in an often cruel world.

It's The Station Agent's meditation on the smaller things in life that make it such a big deal.

The brilliance of Peter Dinklage's performance as the ironclad loner is that he doesn't much care

As comforting, a bit hokey, and predictable as a CBS Sunday Night Movie, this intimate film should play well on television.

Go see The Station Agent. It's one the year's best films and I sincerely hope that it is not overlooked.

This is a gem of a movie that, like its protagonist, boasts a fiercely independent spirit full of discreet optimism and deadpan humour.

It might almost be a subgenre: the Accidental Family film. It's enjoyable and a welcome break from the studio pictures, but it's familiar to you even as you're watching it.

Mr. Dinklage projects both size and intelligence in the fascinating reticence of his face.
