It is very an interesting film within its possess means, a relatively easy and attractive film regarding solitude, being unlike and thoughtful, all cover up in more the 80 minutes of exciting storytelling. I did enjoy the movie, but I wasn't as in use through it as nearly all detractors.
The act Joe is completely very funny. I expect we many more of Bobby Cannavale in prospect movies for the reason that he curved out the doubtful Joe, and Olivia in such a method that offer the show magnificent time. This is shoukd describe pictures. It had a related impact on me that throw sharp edge, but among fewer of an obvious and clear touching shock
It contains many of plusses, the drama the font, but there were also amazing omitted for me and I would advocate that you would watch it.
The movie The Station Agent, takes place in New found land, NJ. There are four main characters; Finbar, Olivia, Henry Styles and Joe. They all have their own personal problems. But the main character Finbar stood out to me the most. Finbar who is four foot five inches tall works at a train shop with his friend and boss, Henry. At the beginning of the story we see Finbar has very low self esteem. The reason for this is because people look down on him, they see him as a midget and not a man. In the beginning of the movie Finbar lives in a small apartment near his job. But with the sudden death of his close friend and boss Henry, Finbar is left with an inheritance of one half acre of land in the small town of Newfoundland, New Jersey. Fin moves there and takes up residence in an abandoned train station on the property. To fin home goes from being a physical state to a emotional state.
There as he lives in his new house he meets Joe, a fun guy who sells food next to where Fin lives. We see that at the beginning of the story Fin doesn’t like Joe that much, but we learn that as the story goes on; Joe and Fin become very good friends. Home was a physical state to Fin. But as the movie went along home became an emotional state. In this movie we see the importance of having a home, because most of the characters get away from there old life and want to start a new one. He knew a lot about train stations so his home was perfect being near a train station. In a way you could say Finbar was really close with his trains. He liked them more than people because people would look at him with mean looks and say mean remarks. During the movie, a young girl named cloey asked Fin to teach her class about trains and his first response was no. In the end he ended up going in and talking about trains because that was favorite thing to talk about. Even though he didn’t want people thinking he was weird. In the end, Finbar knows what it feels like to have a home and caring friends . He doesn’t have to feel lonely anymore.

The movie The Station Agent looks at some characters that live in New Jersey. They are regular people in a regular little town that feel very lonely. Olivia Harris, is a lady that lives alone in a very big house. She was married and had a son called Sam. She was living somewhere else with her small happy family. But after her son had died, it looks like she felt like she had no one. So she moved to their getaway house to get away from her past. She stopped talking to her ex-husband, and just locked herself in that big house. I feel that Olivia feels lonely without her son, and that her son was everything to her. The first time we know Olivia misses her son is when she came to Fin to welcome him to town, and told him about Sam. Another time was when she was sitting with Fin and Joe and then she saw Joe playing soccer with a young boy and a girl, and she became very emotional because she remembered Sam, so she left with tears in her eye. Home to Olivia is not living in a big house, or having the plastic dish rack that Quindlen talks about, for Olivia, home is where she feels happy surrounded with the ones she loves. When Finbar came to town, Olivia was trying so hard to be nice to him and to become his friend. I feel that Olivia feels she relates to Finbar a lot because he is a very unique character that lives alone in a big world that treats him differently than the other people. She feels the same because she does not have anyone with her and feels very lonely. At the end of the movie I felt that Olivia became happy with Finbar and Joe, and felt that they are her family. They all became a happy family together, and everyone cared about each other.
