The Station Agent
From a perspective of someone who just has not bought into the whole obsession with Game of Thrones, I still find Peter Dinklage to be a wonderful actor from what I’ve seen him in (which is a very small amount.) That being said, I gave The Station Agent a shot because I enjoy the other two films that the director, Thomas McCarthy has made (Win, Win and The Visitor). Thomas McCarthy has a knack for realistic and hard hitting drama, it shows in his writing. All three of his films have felt very cerebral. This film isn’t going to knock the socks off of anyone, but it is a very good example of just how far great writing will take you. Peter Dinklage and Bobby Cannavale carry the weight on their shoulders as far as the acting duties are concerned. Both are very commendable actors and I think they earned their dues to deserve the reputations they have.
