Based on the book by the same name, Girl on the Train won the People's Choice Award for Favourite Thriller in 2017 and boasts a star studded cast. It begins with a focus on Rachel Watson, a performance perfectly delivered by Emily Blunt. Rachel Watson is a divorcee struggling with alcoholism after losing her job, who becomes obsessed with a local murder case.
Every day Rachel gets the train into New York, and between sips of vodka she tortures herself by looking at her old house, spying on her ex-husband and his new family who live there now. Rachel spends a lot of time fantasizing about the 'perfect' lives of the suburbanites she sees, lamenting that they are "everything I want to be". One particular focus of her fantasies is a couple, Megan and Tom, who live a few doors down from her old house. To Rachel, they are the perfect couple, and she often imagines what their lives are like instead of facing the depressing reality of her current life.
This goes on, until one day Rachel sees Megan cheating on her husband. This sends Rachel into a drunken rage, and later that night she gets off at her old stop to confront Megan about what she saw. Unfortunately for Rachel, she blacks out at this point and wakes up the next morning covered in blood and bruises with only flashes of ideas of what happened last night. Then she finds out that Megan has gone missing... just what exactly happened last night? Join Rachel as she attempts find out the truth.
