The Girl on the Train
The movie opens on Emily Blunt as Rachel, an unhinged divorcee with a serious drinking problem. She takes the train to and from Manhattan each day, giving her the chance to fixate on the same house every single trip she takes and fantasize about the occupants. As far as surface level entertainment goes, The Girl on the Train succeeds, but there are too many loose ends and too much melodrama for it to amount to much more — or even to be taken seriously. The Girl on the Train also has a rather severe problem with melodrama and unintentionally laughable moments. The themes, the tone, the visual style and more are very reminiscent of the release, and Taylor comes up short in every single category. Girl on the Train features a very delicate mystery that relies on shocking behavior and complicated personal circumstances.
Throughout the story, characters betray and lie to their loved ones. Tom is the most obvious example. He had an affair with Megan without telling Anna, and an affair with Anna without telling Rachel. He also lies about smaller things such as the army and his parents, betraying trust in his relationships as a whole. Tom betrays Megan herself when he dumps her upon finding out that she is pregnant. Another example of betrayal is Megan, who betrayed her husband, Scott, by having an affair with Tom and trying to have an affair with Dr. Kamal Abdic.
