Rachel (Emily Blunt) is devastated by her recent divorce to Tom (Justin Theroux).  She travels the train day and night while suffering from a heavy drinking problem.  She watches Megan from the train and she thinks Megan has the perfect marriage until one day Megan disappears.  She comes to learn Megan used to be the nanny to Tom’s new wife, Anna.   Rachel tries to quit drinking as she tries to sort through the memories of what happened on that night when Megan disappeared.

 

THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN is an adaptation of the best-selling novel.  It is a taut thriller from the point-of-views of three damaged women as the layers peel away during the story to reveal the truth about them and what happened to Megan.   It makes you doubt Rachel while also putting the suspicion on the people she watches and ultimately interacts with.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES: 

Feature audio commentary with director Tate Taylor

 

14 deleted and extended scenes (about 17 minutes total) that feature extra material cut for pacing

 

THE WOMEN BEHIND THE GIRL- actresses Emily Blunt, Rebecca Ferguson, and Haley Bennett (along with the book’s writer, the screenwriter, and director) talk about the characters in the story

On board the train- cast and crew give an analysis of the characters and story in addition to how fun it is to work with director Tate Taylor

 

FINAL ANALYSIS: THE GIRL FROM THE TRAIN is an interesting thriller that is a great character study about damaged people.
