The Station Agent: We saw it this weekend. Boy, it was a wonderful movie. Not terribly complex, but very entertaining. Peter was really funny and also touching in his role which certainly addressed his being a dwarf, but it wasn't necessarily the center of the movie's universe. His character is very quiet and withdrawn, but most of the fun of the movie is seeing his character smile and open up (not always with successful consequences - which is part of any reality). I'd definitely recommend it. If you're a train buff, then it's a must-see, but even if not, the supporting acting is equally excellent and the care that went into the filming is so obvious.
