Commuter Rachel Watson (Emily Blunt) catches daily glimpses of a seemingly perfect couple, Scott and Megan, from the window of her train. One day, Watson witnesses something shocking unfold in the backyard of the strangers' home. Rachel tells the authorities what she thinks she saw after learning that Megan is now missing and feared dead. Unable to trust her own memory, the troubled woman begins her own investigation, while police suspect that Rachel may have crossed a dangerous line.

"[Taylor] deftly translates the bleak, raw-boned menace and tricky time signatures of 'Train’s' intertwined plotlines, and draws remarkably vivid performances from his cast, particularly his two female leads."  - Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly

"Emily Blunt digs so deep into the role of a blackout drunk and maybe murderer that she raises 'Girl' to the level of spellbinder." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“'The Girl On The Train' is a tightly-wound Hitchcockian ride wrought with tension. Elements of voyeurism, self-loathing and murderous intent mix together in a volatile cocktail stirred gently by director Tate Taylor, who doesn’t dilute a single ingredient. ” - Matt Donato, We Got This Covered

"'The Girl on a Train' is 112 minutes of upscale psychodramatic confessional bad-behavior porn, it generates a voyeuristic zing that’s sure to carry audiences along." - Owen Gleiberman, Variety
