The Station Agent
Cert: 15 Year: 2003 Length: 89 mins
Finbar McBride is a dwarf; train-obsessed and fed up with people's reaction to his size. So when he inherits a derelict train depot he tries to retreat into his own privacy.
But solitude is hard to come by in the small town of Newfoundland, with its intrusive characters including Joe the hotdog vendor, permanently parked on his doorstep, and highly-strung artist Olivia, repeatedly running him off the road.
In spite of himself, Fin gets emotionally involved in their personal dramas. When these newly forged bonds are tested that he finally opens his eyes to a broader view of the world and his place in it.
