Dinklage's Finn is a train-obsessed dwarf, who has inherited a disused railway depot in rural New Jersey from an old business partner. He wants to be left in peace to do up the property, walk the tracks and count the trains that still pass through the area. His solitude is disturbed, though, by two other lonely misfits, artist Olivia (Clarkson) and garrulous hot-dog salesman Joe (Cannavale). It's a sensitively acted, gently amusing and carefully crafted film, which never leaves us in much doubt as to its final destination. Still, it's unafraid to meander along at its own relaxed tempo, and Dinklage provides an impressively understated lead performance.
