Finbar McBride (Peter Dinklage) is a man trying to live life on his own terms. Looking only to be left alone, he takes up residence in an rural town's old train depot. But much like the station agents that occupied small town depots before him, he finds himself reluctantly becoming enmeshed in the lives of his neighbors, especially Olivia (Patricia Clarkson), a forty-year old artist struggling with the break up of her marriage, and Joe (Bobby Cannavale) a thirty-year-old with a talent for cooking and an insatiable hunger for conversation - whether anyone wants to talk to him or not.

  • Another little gem from Thomas McCarthy - (go watch The Visitor). Well written, well acted and has some wonderful and slightly quirky characters. Peter Dinklage gives his usual solid performance and the people who become his friends are a likeable bunch. If you want action, this is not your film. A thoughtful and emotionally satisfying drama. Recommended.

  • Boasting a fantastic cast and an excellent script, this is a smart and delightfully sweet film about love, loneliness and getting by with a little help from our friends.

  • A unusually movie however very likeable and easy to watch.

  • Very enjoyable, evenly paced intriguing movie about life, friendship and the need to be by yourself. Not your typical hollywood movie (or ending!) at all. Strangely compelling. 4 stars.

  • Very enjoyable movie with terrific performances.
