“The Station Agent” (2003) is a moving comedy about a group of unexpected friends who meet when each person is undergoing a major life transition. Peter Dinklage plays Fin, a man who was born with dwarfism. Fin decides to live in an abandoned train depot after inheriting it from a friend. He sees this as an opportunity to live a life of solitude and contemplation. Yet Fin quickly becomes embroiled in the lives of the townspeople who are drawn to his thoughtfulness and composure. Over time, Fin becomes the center-point in this new group of friends who all help one another take a courageous step forward in life. The role of Fin is considered by many to be the breakout role for Peter Dinklage who most recently won an Emmy for his work in the HBO series “Game of Thrones.”
