McBride (Peter Dinklage) is a man trying to live life on his own terms. Looking only to be left alone, he takes up residence in an 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 (Patricia Clarkson), a forty-year old artist struggling with the break up of her marriage, and Joe (Bobby Cannavale) a thirty-year-old with a talent for cooking and an insatiable hunger for conversation - whether anyone wants to talk to him or not.
Of course, one of the best ever films starring a small person was "Living In Oblivion" - with the great Buscemi. And Dinklage as the aforementioned dwarf. If you haven't seen the hysterically funny "angry dwarf" dream scene, you need to check Oblivion out. Dinklage is a superb actor - and this is definitely worth a spin.
