The Girl on the Train

Despite a characteristically intense and fully committed performance by Emily Blunt as the alcoholic title character, Tate Taylor’s ("The Help") 2016 adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ best-selling mystery novel is disappointingly uneven, particularly in terms of its pacing. It still turned a tidy profit at the box office, thanks to a fine cast that also includes Justin Theroux, Rebecca Ferguson, Luke Evans, Lisa Kudrow and Allison Janney. Danny Elfman contributed the effective musical score.
