    I read the book when it first came out, which was a while ago. From what I remember, this is a fairly faithful adaptation. The story, quite honestly, is fairly dark and depressing. Having a main character (Rachel/Emily Blunt) who is an alcoholic doesn't help, although (SPOILERS AHEAD) we find out at the end that her actions while she is blacked out aren't as bad as she thought they were. Still, it is hard to feel real sympathy toward her, or toward the secondary character (Megan/Haley Bennett) who is quite promiscuous, despite being married. Even the third woman (Anna/Rebecca Ferguson), who would seem to be one of the most sympathetic characters, starts out as the mistress of Rachel's husband and, along with Rachel's drinking, is the major cause of Rachel and Tom's (Justin Theroux) divorce. There isn't anyone to root for in this movie (or the book). The best one can hope for is that the truth comes out, which it does eventually. And Rachel finally starts getting her life together. P.S. Totally ignore reviews by people who say they only watched 15 or 20 minutes of the movie. It has quite a twisted, convoluted plot so you cannot evaluate a movie like that in 15 or 20 minutes. I understand why they might not like it - as noted, it is not a cheerful movie so if you don't like movies like "Gone Girl" you probably won't like this one.

    ' The Girl on the Train' is based on a book. Judging it separate from the book and you hits very good movie with great acting from lead Emily Blunt. If you like suspenseful mysteries, them I highly recommend this movie. The movie contains the usual features that are common in most releases. I usually ignore them so I have no opinion of them. Small summary of movie. Rachel, a sad shell of a person after a messy divorce who drinks away the day, rides the train everyday. In this train ride, she becomes enamored with a couple in which she fantasizes as them as the perfect couple. When the woman of the couple is reporter as missing, she involves herself in trying to find what happen to the women. Through doing around she finds that both the couple she fantasized as a perfect couple may not be the perfect couple at all, while discovering some truths about the pasts she had trouble remembering.

    One Heck of a Train Ride

    Cryptic and absorbing, The Girl on the Train makes of a train ride something much more fun, engaging, compelling, and even sordid. Emily Blunt is outstanding, and certainly she gets a un for her money from Haley Bennett and Rebecca Ferguson who are simply superb! Tangled between reality, fantasy, and hangovers, our heroine can't seem quite to grasp what's really going on in the world around her. She makes you wonder, and falsely guess, and then wonder again. A great ensemble make the film even more atmospheric and hard to detangle. A cautionary tale? An urban story with several sub stories, or simply "women on the verge a nervous breakdown?" There is where the reasons for watching this film reside; one can never be quite sure of hardly anything that transpires from this captivating tale.

    Emily Blunt does a wonderful job as the recently divorced woman who has trouble adjusting to her new life, and spends much of her time riding the train into the city - the same train she always took from her home when she was married. Her attention is focused on a young woman she sees daily, on the balcony of her house, which is just down the road from her former home. It is a daily ritual until she sees the young woman with a man on the balcony, and then doesn't see the young woman any longer. She wonders what may have happened, and begins a journey that involves opening up memories from her past that she tried to hide. Atmospheric and well-paced, it is a good mystery, but just misses being a great film for reasons you'll have to discover for yourself.

    This I know is no fault of BestBuy. Yes I buy and use all my digital codes. The great thing about buying Blurays is to be able to access your bought movie without having to lug the entire thing around plus something to play it on. Well mine did not have a code upon opening. Contacted contacted the company direct and oh well they don't care. hard to prove the slip wasn't in it unless i had done a video unboxing, which I don't do for anything. So it is a shame, cant return it cause I opened it, cant get a code because they feel one was in every box. Pity

    Despite its huge worldwide sales, the novel "The Girl on the Train" is a decent read -- but nothing special. The same goes for the movie version -- a good performance by Emily Blunt in the lead role, but the overall effect is so-so. The film is based on the novel's shaky premise -- an unreliable narrator's mixture of fantasy and reality as she observes the actions of her former husband and an intertwined group of friends/enemies. Everyone looks good and does a reasonable job of portraying unpleasant people in often-implausible situations.
