Emily Blunt, Justin Theroux and cast, give us a glimpse into the exciting dramatic thriller, The Girl on the Train.
Paula Hawkins best-selling novel, The Girl On The Train, is a mystery thriller that was ripe for a big-screen adaptation.
Reeling from a recent divorce and searching to preoccupy her days, Rachel Watson (played by Emily 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 she once shared with her now ex-husband Tom (Justing Theroux), who now lives there with his new wife, Anna and their baby.
Her daily train commute ignites her obsession with the occupants of another house on the route, 15 Beckett Road—a few doors down from where she used to reside. The seemingly perfect couple, whose life Rachel covets, has secrets of their own.
For months, in between furtive sips of the liquor that’s become a constant companion, Rachel has stolen glimpses of the stunning Megan and handsome Scott as they drink 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, Rachel witnesses something so shocking in Megan and Scott’s backyard that it rocks her to the core. Soon after, when Megan goes missing and is feared dead, Rachel tells the police what she believes she has seen. But can Rachel 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.
In this video feature, Emily Blunt and the cast talk about their characters and bring this mystery onto the big screen.
The Girl On The Train opens in theatres October 7.
