SYNOPSIS
In the thriller, Rachel (Blunt), who is 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.
Belonging to the Gone Girl zone, where almost every character is deceitful, self-destructive and delusional, this psychological thriller is clearly not everyones cup of tea. Watching Rachel grappling with her insecurities and unstable mind constantly is a mighty depressing experience. Her insanity and struggle to find a sense of worth and purpose in her miserable life is devastating even for you as a viewer. You watch her, the way she watches other people on her daily commute and it sends shivers down your spine. ...Read full review
Fans of Paula Hawkinss runaway bestseller have reacted with dismay to the changes made to her story as it travelled from the page to the screen. Whether its shifting the destination from the grit of London to the gloss of New York, or casting commuters too glamorous to ride this route, The Help director Tate Taylor has signally failed to reassure doubters that their beloved journey has not been disrupted. Yet for those (like me) who jump aboard Taylors movie before reading the book, theres plenty to keep this cinematic train a-rollin, from Charlotte Bruus Christensens adventurous cinematography to Danny Elfmans expressive score and Erin Cressida Wilsons oddly sympathetic script. Most importantly, in the shape of the mercurial Emily Blunt, The Girl on the Train has a believably derailed heroine whose hollow eyes, crusty lips and stumbling gait convey Leaving Las Vegas levels of addiction while still retaining an air of mystery and intrigue. ...Read full review
Tate Taylors The Girl on the Train may be technically set in the Westchester suburb of Ardsley-on-Hudson, but its cocktail of commuter trains, marital infidelity and alcoholism make its proper setting Cheever Country. ...Read full review
There is a delinquent pleasure in watching lives visible outside a train window. Paula Hawkinss The Girl on The Train understood that and this is what made that bestseller so near and immediate. We had all imagined similar stories around people glimpsed on train rides; the book even stirred up the memory of some. ...Read full review
The Girl on the Train, adapted from the runaway bestseller by Paula Hawkins, is a reasonably gripping suspense thriller that never quite hits the high notes of 2014s Gone Girl, to which it will inevitably be compared. That film, based on the book by Gillian Flynn, benefitted enormously from the moody, ominous tone set by David Fincher and his signature creepy atmospherics. This one must settle for The Help director Tate Taylors faithful but frankly unremarkable approach. ...Read full review
