A Week In Film #415: Wah?

The Girl On The Train title screen
The Girl On The Train
Efficient adaptation by Tate Taylor (never heard of him) of a novel by Paula Hawkins (never heard of her) about an alcoholic woman (Emily Blunt) who has a stalky-stalky relationship with her ex (Justin Theroux) and his new wife (Rebecca Ferguson) – as well as their neighbours (Luke Evans and Haley Bennett), played out during her constant commutes past their house on a suburban train. BUT ALL IS NOT AS IT SEEMS, etc.

Enjoyable, a bit hokey, Blunt is great, nice turn from Evans as a ragey cuckold, Édgar Ramirez as a shrink, Allison Janney as a suspicious cop.
