Movie Review : The Girl on the train



Rachael (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 , until one morning she sees something shocking happen there and becomes entangled in the mystery that unfolds .


  • It had a simple , yet complex story-line .
  • Emily Blunt had an outstanding performance in this movie.


  • Some scenes where unnecessarily explicit.
  • The pace of the movie was too slow .
  • It takes a while to figure out who the characters are and how they relate to each other.


Dr Abdic- “ Why are you here?

Racheal “ Because im scared of myself.”


Racheal “ I saw her…i saw her from the train”



The Girl on the train is a very interesting, tense, psychological thriller. It was cleverly written and will have you constantly second guessing yourself as to who the true villain is . Emily Blunt’s performance was simply amazing. She played such a believable character that you cant help but feel for . The pace of the movie is slow but it builds up nicely towards the end with huge twists and turns.

The main themes of the movie are alcohol abuse , jealousy and infidelity . The movie shows how different people react to similar situations. The characters Rachael (Emily Blunt) Meagan ( Haley Bennett ) and Anna ( Rebecca Ferguson  ) are seemingly different sides of singular shared experience through their reactions ,memories and dreams ,mixed together in a mosaic of rage .

The Girl on the train is a thought provoking movie that you will surely enjoy.
