The Girl on a Train 2016 8+ out of 10

The Girl on a Train 2016  8+ out of 10

The Girl on a Train is slow to get going, but makes it's way down the track to a satisfying end.  It reminded me a little bit of Presume Innocent with Harrison Ford.  The story follows Rachel Watson (played by Emily Blunt) as she takes her daily train ride into New York.  She is obsessed with the life of a what appears to be a happy couple that she sees from the train everyday until one day when she sees the girls kissing someone else on the balcony.  The girl whose life she dreams about turns up missing that same night and Rachel suffers from missing time from her drinking problem. Is she responsible or is it someone else.  Without giving away the rest of the story an interesting mystery unfolds following the girl's disappearance.   
Like I mentioned above this film felt in tone very much like Presumed Innocent which I loved. The film does a decent of job of keeping you guessing throughout. I thought the mystery was satisfying and the acting was solid.  Definitely worth a watch if you like murder mysteries.
