Before Tyrion Lannister, Peter Dinklage excelled as another sardonic misanthrope in this award-winning indie comedy from director Tom McCarthy (Spotlight).

Drama 2003 90 mins

Director: Thomas McCarthy

Overview

Dinklage plays Finbar McBride, an aloof train enthusiast who inherits a disused railway station in a small town. Forced out of his comfort zone, Finbar has to open up to people around him, and for the first time begins to cultivate meaningful relationships.

Acclaimed director Tom McCarthy made his debut with this expertly judge indie comedy, which deftly balances warmhearted drama with the acerbic wit of Dinklage in a memorable, and star-making, lead role. The film was an instant hit following its premiere at Sundance Film Festival in 2003, where it won three prizes; and equally acclaimed when it made its way to the UK, screening at the BFI London Film Festival and winning a BAFTA for Best Screenplay.
