Finbar McBride is a young man affected with dwarfism who has just lost his best friend and seeks a life of solitude in an abandoned train station. That plan is blighted by the daily appearance of a cast of characters including a friendly and talkative hot dog vendor and an artist coping with the death of her son whose interactions with Finbar show him that none of us ever truly want to be alone.
"For 88 all-too-brief minutes, we get to hang out with very companionable people, eavesdrop on their small talk and come to know them intimately, perhaps more intimately than we can get to know our own family members." -- Joe Baltake, Sacramento Bee
"The best advice to filmgoers who appreciate smart, mature, humanist movies is, simply, Go." - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
