The Bottom Line
"The Station Agent" is one of the few movies where at the end, I felt like I wanted just another 15 more minutes with the characters. I seriously didn't want this film to be over. If you're looking for a movie with meaningful character development, it doesn't get much better than "The Station Agent."
- One of the best movies of 2003
- Features a very strong ensemble cast
- Not many bonus features, but then again, they're really not necessary
- Five deleted scenes (including one with the director's father)
- Commentary by Peter Dinklage, Bobby Cannavale and Patricia Clarkson and writer/director Tom McCarthy
- DVD Release Date: June 15, 2004
Guide Review - "The Station Agent" DVD Review
Fin McBride (Peter Dinklage) loves trains and solitude. Joe (Bobby Cannavale) wants to be friends with everyone. And Olivia (Patricia Clarkson) is a troubled artist working her way through a recent tragedy. Though the three have absolutely nothing in common, their small town isolated lives lead them into a friendship which ultimately changes each of them in extraordinary ways.
Watch the movie once, and then watch it again with the commentary on. It's not often all the lead actors contribute significantly to the commentary track and when they do - as in this case - the result is an entirely different viewing experience.
