A mystery unfolds

This movie adaptation of the best-selling novel is sure to thrill you…

The Girl on the Train follows the story of Rachel, a woman who is recently-divorced and an alcoholic. The train she uses to work every day happens to pass by the house of her ex-husband Tom and his new wife, Anna (shocker!) as well as a seemingly unrelated couple, who live a few doors down from Tom. The plot thickens when the woman of that house, Megan goes missing – a mystery in which Rachel gets wrapped up in (yikes!). As the story unfolds, we find out that things are definitely not what they seem. We don’t know about you but we’re super excited about this one! If you’ve read the book, you’ll know that this movie is a must-see. (Release date October 7)
