CAST & CREW
MORE CAST & CREW
“The Girl on the Train”…isn’t the title intriguing? Well, we all love sitting near the train window and watching lives from there. Paula Hawkins wrote a book named The Girl on the Train in 2015 by understanding this. Her novel also was one of the bestsellers of all time. Now let’s see how this cinematic version turns to be.
Instead of telling the story let me tell you in this way; The Girl on the Train is a mixture of passenger trains (this is where the lead actress commutes), marital disloyalty, nostalgia of good old happy married days, sexual hints, and alcoholism. Now you interconnect these aspects; you get the film The Girl on the Train.
Emily Blunt has a captivating charisma and this compensates for her lack of competency in portraying the character Rachel. Haley Bennett manages to get our empathy and fits the role to the T. The rest of the cast do a convincing job.
The director Tate Taylor has not followed the book exactly; he has taken some cinematic liberties. The movie talks about self-destructive characters which may not be liked by all.
The movie has some strange twists.
What’s not there?
The cinematic version is not as impactful as the novel. However, if you are game for a gloomy film with its own share of thrills, then you can watch this film.
