Movie Gem- ‘The Station Agent’ ( 2003)
What does a dwarf named Finn have in common with a grieving woman, a talkative Cuban and a chunky second grader? More than you might think. My husband and I watched ‘The Station Agent’ and were instantly captivated by the characters. Finn is a quiet man working in a model train store. He spends all his waking hours avoiding the stares and ridicule of people. His boss, who is his only friend, dies and leaves him an abandoned railroad station in a rural town somewhere in New Jersey. Finn walks the tracks near his new home seeking solitude however that’s not what the future holds for him. He may be short in stature but Finn has a very big heart.
