The Station Agent Reviews

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

Each of these characters has a generic, can-be- summed-up- with-one- character-trait quality, and there's no compelling reason for them to exist or for their stories to be told.

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

...indie flavor-of-the-month Patricia Clarkson is so predictable in her quirky style that you can set your watch by her.

A dull and obvious film posing as a subtle character study.

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

The Station Agent features characters so insufferably quirky their relationship could only exist in Indie-wood.

...I was checking my watch every few minutes?even though I knew that I wasn?t wearing one?just because it gave me something to do.

High-concept elements can't obscure how tired the surrogate family storyline is.

Rarely has friendship -- honest, genuine friendship -- been portrayed so truthfully, with the gentle humor that belies real intimacy.

Yes, this is a comedy, but it's also sad, and finally it's simply a story about trying to figure out what you love to do and then trying to figure out how to do it.

[The Station Agent] brings a fine sense of place, a saving humor, and a delicate appreciation of the way we sit tight on our hurts and losses, or run from them in order to avoid further pain.

This human drama may be a big showcase for small actor Peter Dinklage, but it's much more than a one-man show. ...

Like many a Sundance film, The Station Agent is something less than its festival buzz, but it's an often-gratifying vehicle for several likeable and talented actors.

McCarthy's impressive directorial debut reflects, like few other films in recent memory, the feeling that we aren't alone, no matter how much we might think we want to be.
