“The Girl on the Train”. . . . . . a film

Image result for image of girl on the train

I had not read the book and had been told the plot only that  this is similar to GONE GIRL. It is not and way more dark and sinister . I wish I had not seen it as images are  still with me today since I saw this yesterday.  The train takes suburban workers daily into the city and back home in the evening.  A sad alcoholic woman looks as lives fly by,  imagining and obsessing on  the details  of people she saw.

That is enough of the story. There is divorce, drug abuse, lies, affairs, emotional abuse, and horribly broken relationships.  I don’t recommend that anyone see this film even though  so highly advertised. It seems to me to be the epitome of this post-modern world of broken, throw- away people.

But I am curious , if you have seen it and have a difference of option.  Please write and share with me ! It wouldn’t be the first time, that I am off base !

  1. I have not seen this film… but after watching the trailer I kinda want to! I like dark and sinister 🙂 Do you not recommend people see it because it is dark and sinister or just simply because it is bad with bad acting and plots?

      That is a good point. I prefer films with a redemptive aspect to the story. Women sitting behind said it was true to the book which was quite popular. Acting very believable. It is definitely a slice of life! Please let me know what you think after seeing it! I admit to being a forever Pollyanna! Thanks for stopping by and commenting!


  2. Thrillers always increase curiosity quotient of a movie or story. Trailer does that.
