Movie Reviews – The Station Agent: A Story Gift
Movie reviews and a good story alert: The Station Agent. This is a quiet movie that surprises you with what’s inside like a great present that arrives in brown paper. It’s only after you open it up that you see just how wonderful a gift it is.
If you’re anything like me, you’re always looking for good movies to watch. Here’s the synopsis from the movie’s website:
Finbar McBride is a man trying to live life on his own terms. Looking only to be left alone, he takes up residence in a 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, a forty-year-old artist struggling with the break up of her marriage, and Joe, a thirty-year-old with a talent for cooking and an insatiable hunger for conversation – whether anyone wants to talk to him or not.
The STATION AGENT is about three people with nothing in common, except their shared solitude, until chance circumstances bring their lives together. Before long, from this forgotten depot, this mismatched threesome forges an unlikely bond, which ultimately reveals that even isolation is better shared.
My read: The Station Agent is a 5 Star escape!
