Critics Consensus: Emily Blunt's outstanding performance isn't enough to keep The Girl on the Train from sliding sluggishly into exploitative melodrama.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Girl on the Train is a psychological thriller based on Paula Hawkins' best-selling novel. It's about Rachel (Emily Blunt), a bitter ex-wife and blackout alcoholic who fixates on a seemingly happy couple she watches from the train. Then the woman (Haley Bennett) goes missing, and Rachel wakes up covered in blood, unable to remember the night before. Expect tense, violent confrontations, as well as graphic scenes of people fighting for their lives. Drinking is constant but not glamorized: Rachel is often shown sloppily, belligerently drunk and horribly hung over. Characters have sex in bed, outdoors, and the shower, though sensitive nudity is limited to a non-sexual shot of a naked woman shown from behind. Language includes "f--k," "s--t," and more.
