Over 50 critics from across the country have honored THE STATION AGENT as one of 2003's top films!  Check out a sampling of what critics are saying and the list of critics supporting our film:

Barry Paris, PITTSBURGH POST GAZETTE:
Best flick of the year! ...
Writer-director Tom McCarthy's feature debut is a treasure of emotional honesty, deadpan humor and wonderful performances. Dinklage is the first 4-and-a-half-foot leading man in film history, and he's terrific.

Richard Roeper, CHICAGO SUN TIMES Film Critic:
A pitch-perfect slice of life...
Bobby Cannavale delivers one of the most winning performances of the year as the unbelievably chatty guy who runs a nearby coffee wagon, and the wonderful Patricia Clarkson completes this quirky trio as a fragile divorcee mourning a lost child. There's also a sweet romance between Dinklage and Michelle Williams from TV's "Dawson Creek." Writer-director Tom McCarthy delivers a funny, offbeat, insightful film.

Jan Stuart, NY NEWSDAY:
In a captivating feature debut, director-screenwriter Tom McCarthy took the setup for an eccentric joke and came up with 2003's pluckiest, most affecting human comedy.

Liz Braun, TORONTO SUN:
The best film of the year was The Station Agent...
The Station Agent is about three lonely people who become friends. It's also about everything else under the sun that pertains to being human. And that's about it. It's a film that makes you feel glad to be alive.

Brian Brooks, INDIEWIRE Associate Editor:
Bravo to the people who had the courage to make this film! Next time one of my friends from overseas tells me that American films are all about stars, special effects, and mega marketing...I'll say, well...The Station Agent.
