Girl on the train stays on track for suspense

October 11, 2016

 Tate Taylor's 2016 film, “The Girl On The Train” is a movie that will keep you thinking from beginning to end.



Rachel (Emily Blunt) sitting on the train observing the "perfect couple."


The film initiates with the main character Rachel (Emily Blunt) riding the train day-dreaming about her past life while watching the perfect couple out the window.

Rachel rides the train every day to New York and back home with the only motive of seeing the perfect couple she comes upon while riding on the train.


Later it is revealed that the home of the “perfect couple” is two houses down the street of where her own marriage fell apart on account of her alcoholism. 

The perfect relationship between Megan (Haley Bennet) and Scott (Luke Evans), made Rachel very interested and jealous of them because they had the type of relationship she always wanted.


One day while riding on the train Rachel happens to see Megan with another man and starts to go insane because she knows how it feels to be betrayed by a significant other.

She stops at a bar in New York and gets drunk with a random woman who expresses her thoughts about the situation which makes her start screaming all these psychotic intentions of wanting to murder Megan for betraying Scott.

She decides to call her ex-husband Tom (Justin Theroux) to see how he and his new wife Ana (Rebbeca Ferguson) are doing.

Rachel was on the train and decide sto get off the train to acknowledge Ana.


She tells her how she really felt after so many years of not being able to find a way to tell Tom and Ana her true feelings.

She was extremely drunk and blacking out, she passes by a tunnel where she believes she sees Ana and calls her a whore.

After that she doesn’t remember what happens.


All she remembers is waking up at her house without a single clue how she got there or why she is bleeding from her head. 

The film then goes into further detail through flashbacks.


That’s when all her flashbacks dating to four months ago up until the Friday that Megan goes missing.

The flashbacks from the film keep you on the edge of your seat wanting to figure out the truth behind every moment in which everyone is trying to figure out what happened to Megan.

I would rate this movie 4 out of 5 stars.
