ABOUT THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN
EMILY BLUNT (Sicario, Edge of Tomorrow) leads the all-star cast of DreamWorks Pictures’ The Girl on the Train, from director TATE TAYLOR (The Help, Get on Up) and producer MARC PLATT (Bridge of Spies, Into the Woods). Based on author PAULA HAWKINS’ bestselling novel, the thriller that has riveted millions now makes its way to the big screen.
Reeling from a recent divorce and searching to preoccupy her days, Rachel Watson (Blunt) spends her weekday commute to and from Manhattan quietly gazing out the train windows. Every morning and evening, she relives memories from just outside the home once shared with now ex-husband Tom (JUSTIN THEROUX of The Leftovers, The Ten), who now lives there with his new wife, Anna (REBECCA FERGUSON of Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation, upcoming The Snowman), and their baby.
To distract herself from a secret addiction that causes unsettling blackouts, Rachel becomes intrigued by the occupants of another house on the route, 15 Beckett Road—a few doors down from her former one. There, blissfully unaware that a stranger is watching so longingly, the seemingly perfect couple Megan (HALEY BENNETT of The Equalizer, The Magnificent Seven) and Scott (LUKE EVANS of Dracula Untold, upcoming Beauty and the Beast) go about the business of suburban life.
For months, Rachel has stolen glimpses of the stunning Megan and handsome Scott as they sip morning coffee by their windows or laugh on their porch at nighttime—and imagined how idyllic their world must be. The seemingly carefree young woman is the portrait of everything that Rachel tried to be during her years with Tom, in a marriage from which she refuses to let go.
One day, on her way into the city, the inebriated Rachel witnesses something so shocking in Megan and Scott’s backyard that it rocks her to the core. Soon after, when news breaks that the young woman has gone missing and is feared dead, Rachel decides to come forward and tell the police. But can she trust what she thinks she witnessed, or is she entangled in the crime itself? When one voyeur crosses the dangerous line between concerned and obsessed, she will either find the real killer…or discover that there is innocent blood on her own hands.
