After her divorce, a woman named Rachel Watson (Emily Blunt) experiences severe depression. While traveling daily by train to the city to get to her job, Rachel finds some comfort when she sees what she believes to be the "perfect" couple, Scott (Luke Evans) and Megan (Haley Bennett), and creates an imaginary fantasy life for them.

However, when she later witnesses Megan kissing another man, it angers her, even though she doesn't actually know the people involved. The next day, when she wakes up with no memory of the night before and finds out that Megan has gone missing, Rachel finds she can't help but get involved in their drama/murder mystery.

  • 3 stars "pretty good movie"
  • 5 stars "Fun, twisty thriller! Can't believe anyone wouldn't like this movie! I'm glad all the negative reviews didn't stop me from watching it. Emily Blunt plays a very convincing alcoholic."
  • 4 stars "Much better than I expected . Never read the book so had to really pay attention to what was happening. Kept me in suspense the entire time and loved how it all came together at the end. I would nominate Emily Blunt for an Oscar. Also enjoyed the scenery. Worth seeing again."
