Girl on the Train starring Emily Blunt, Haley Bennett, Luke Evans, Justin Theroux, Rebecca Ferguson and Edgar Ramirez grossed 103.9 million its opening weekend, Oct. 7, 2016.
Based on the thriller novel by the same name written by Paula Hawkins, the book nor the movie disappoints. If you are a fan of Gillian Flynn’s book and movie Gone Girl, I would highly recommend it.

Rachel and Tom’s marriage crumbles under the pressure of her not being able to get pregnant, and her excessive drinking. Tom cheats with their real estate agent Anna Boyd (Rebecca Ferguson) and starts a new life with her.
A distraught Rachel becomes obsessive watching her past life and neighbors everyday on the train into New York, she believes she committed a crime which she cannot remember, but as it turns out she is not the killer.
Though the film has received some negative critical reviews, I think Emily Blunt and Haley Bennett did their characters justice. Emily Blunt has also starred in Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, and Into the Woods, she received Golden Globe Nominations for her roles.
