The Girl On the Train Description

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.
The Girl on the Train is the story of Rachel Watson's life post-divorce. Every day, she takes the train in to work in New York, and every day the train passes by her old house. The house she lived in with her husband, who still lives there, with his new wife and child. As she attempts to not focus on her pain, she starts watching a couple who live a few houses down -- Megan and Scott Hipwell. She creates a wonderful dream life for them in her head, about how they are a perfect happy family. And then one day, as the train passes, she sees something shocking, filling her with rage. The next day, she wakes up with a horrible hangover, various wounds and bruises, and no memory of the night before. She has only a feeling: something bad happened. Then come the TV reports: Megan Hipwell is missing. Rachel becomes invested in the case and trying to find out what happened to Megan, where she is, and what exactly she herself was up to that same night Megan went missing.
Rachel Watson, 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, until one morning she sees something shocking happen there and becomes entangled in the mystery that unfolds.

The Girl On the Train Movie Reviews

  • Surprising

    This was on sale, so I bought it. I agree that it can be slow at times, but the mystery of trying to understand what is happening was enough for me. I'd say it's more of a mystery and drama than a thriller, and the outcome was surprising - I didn't guess it until the very end.
  • I Didn't Read The Book

    But the movie was a mindf***. It was worth watching. More sex in the movie than I cared for, which I skipped through... but the plot was worth figuring out.

    This movie is getting called slow and not good but it's a great movie! Just need to pay attention to it, it is slow at first to build suspense and confusion to keep you guessing. Teaches you that just because the "well to do person without any noticeable problems" seems like they are the normal ones, doesn't mean they are. Sometimes they are the ones who cause the problems. I loved this movie!
  • Really Liked It

    I really liked this movie & had been very excited to see it ever since I first saw the trailer. I love Emily Blunt & her performance in this movie in my opinion had to be one of her best! Great thriller.
  • Dreadful!

    I heard so much hype about the book and was told so many time how much I need to see this movie... well, no, I didn't need to see it. It's bad, really bad. Enough with the sloppy drunk voice over all ready. Save your money and wait for it to come out on Netflix or Amazon.

    Was so looking forward to watching this. Immensely disappointed when it ended. It was terribly slow and dull.
  • Suspense and Drama weaved together
