The Station Agent. Ehh, it was OK. It was self-consciously "indie" and "quirky," but in a low key, non-annoying way. It reminded me of Box of Moonlight, which was quite a bit better, and certainly a lot funnier.

My biggest criticism of The Station Agent would be that it only had the barest wisp of an actual story. I realize it was primarily a character study, but the events motivating the main characters were not only off-screen, but so far in the background as to barely register. Still, it was a decent enough way to pass an evening in a hotel room in Pittsburgh.
