The Station Agent

This understated independent masterpiece centres on a train obsessed dwarf, drawn out of his solitude by inheriting a derelict station where a handful of other damaged and lonely characters are washed up. Its an oblique comedy that slyly subverts the conventional image of the Hollywood hero.
