The Girl On The Train

What did she see?

Poster for The Girl On The TrainThe Girl On The Train is a juicy cinematic page-turner, a captivating yarn that unfolds as a torrid, can’t-put-it-down whodunnit, just like the Paula Hawkins’s bestseller on which it is based.

Emily Blunt is dour and unglued as Rachel, an alcoholic whose life has unraveled since her split with her ex-husband Tom (Justin Theroux). Every day she rides the train past her old home in Ardsley, New York, and gets caught up in the life of Megan (Haley Bennett), who lives a few doors down from her former residence. When Megan goes missing, Rachel throws herself into the investigation and gets caught in a tangled web of intrigue.

Director Tate Taylor (The Help) lays out the story like bread crumbs along a trail, introducing twists and turns in the plot through glimpses that are later resolved, like future flashbacks. The cast, especially Blunt and Bennett, turn in fine, layered performances. Even if you know the story already, it’s well worth the ride.
