The Girl on the Train is based on Paula Hawkins’ bestselling thriller that shocked the world. Rachel (Emily Blunt), devastated by her recent divorce, spends her daily commute fantasizing about the seemingly perfect couple who live in a house that her train passes every day. Everything changes when she sees something shocking happen there, and becomes entangled in the mystery that unfolds.
Liked it. Good movie but it had the potential to be an excellent movie. Its a bit long and does bore a bit. The twist at the end is good. The movie does remind of Gone Girl and there is some similarity with respect to the twist. Some scenes are excellent like the scene where Rachel goes to a alcoholics group or her scene with the psychiatrist Kamal Abdic. The best scene of the movie is the scene where Megan talks to Kamal about her child.
Emily Blunt was very good as always and nailed the part of the alcoholic Rachel. She was excellent in a couple of scenes. Haley Bennett looked very sexy and was very good as Megan. Rebecca Ferguson was good as Anna. Justin Theroux was good as Rachel’s ex-husband Tom. Luke Evans was good as Megan’s husband Scott. Allison Janney was ok as the Detective. Édgar Ramírez was good as the psychiatrist Kamal Abdic.
