The Girl on the Train (Directed by: Tate Taylor; Based on the novel by Paula Hawkins)
Starring: Emily Blunt, Haley Bennett, Rebecca Ferguson, Justin Theroux, Luke Evans, Edgar Ramírez, Laura Prepon, Allison Janney, Lisa Kudrow, Lana Young
My thoughts on this film: I have never read the book, but I must say that I found the movie bitterly disappointing.
It was devoid of any imagination, life or characters worth caring for.
Looking worse for wear and giving her all, Emily Blunt tries desperately to elevate the film around her in her portrayal of hard drinking and divorced Rachel - who is our film's focus -, but despite her commitment and dedication, Rachel is not an overly appealing character and remains hard to watch for most of the film.
So uninspired and boring, I will say that you can afford to miss this one train!
