DISCLAIMER: DO NOT watch this movie with your conservative mother and Aunt! There are some INTENSE sex scenes and butt action.
That being said, I really enjoyed the Girl on the Train. As someone who has read the book, I was a little confused at first. The book is based in London but the movie was set in New York, so it took a little getting used to. I know that it is hard to get everything from a book into a movie, so I think they made the adaption very strategically.
This Gone Girl-esque film kept you just as unsure about what Emily Blunt’s character, Rachel, had done as she was herself. The missing parts of her memory never fully coming together till the end keeps the audience intrigued the whole time. Emily Blunt did a fantastic job embodying her character. I think she could have filled up a swimming pool with the amount of tears that she shed. All of it was very believable.
What sets this film apart from others is that it is filmed from the perspective of three different women who all share a part in the overall story. Now the beginning is when you really need to pay attention because some things are very subtle but crucial to the story.
Don’t even try to guess who the murderer is because you will most likely be wrong. Just go see the movie if you want to find out 🙂
