The Girl on the Train {Book to Movie}

This is the perfect movie to see this spooky season. A mysterious thriller that will keep you guessing all movie long. I have to say when I read the book I was surprised by the ending. It was not as crazy of a twisted book as Gone Girl but still interesting and a great page turner. 
I am really interested in seeing this movie because I love Emily Blunt and she plays the main character. 
So mark your calendars to go see
this weekend.
Opens October 7th
Rated R
112 minutes

The Girl on the Train Movie Poster
{Movie Synopsis}

The Girl on the Train is the story of Rachel Watson's life post-divorce. Every day, she takes the train in to work in New York, and every day the train passes by her old house. The house she lived in with her husband, who still lives there, with his new wife and child. As she attempts to not focus on her pain, she starts watching a couple who live a few houses down -- Megan and Scott Hipwell. She creates a wonderful dream life for them in her head, about how they are a perfect happy family. And then one day, as the train passes, she sees something shocking, filling her with rage. The next day, she wakes up with a horrible hangover, various wounds and bruises, and no memory of the night before. She has only a feeling: something bad happened. Then come the TV reports: Megan Hipwell is missing. Rachel becomes invested in the case and trying to find out what happened to Megan, where she is, and what exactly she herself was up to that same night Megan went missing.

The Girl on the Train Book
{Book Synopsis}
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

I really fell in love with Emily when she was in the movie Edge of Tomorrow with Tom Cruise. She kicked some series a**.

Some of her upcoming projects are: Animal Crackers (voice), Gnomeo & Juliet: Sherlock Gnomes (Juliet), and Mary Poppins Returns playing Mary Poppins. Yay!

Talking about Powerhouses, I love the two movies he has directed so far. If you don't recognize his name you will most definitely recognize the movies he has directed such as: The Help and Get on Up. His upcoming project is Versailles '73 which has just been announced. This was seriously a great cast and crew to work with. I am crossing my fingers it will live up to expectations.
