Great job of acting for Emily Blunt as the girl destroyed by her recent divorce, spending her daily commutes (even though she was fired for being an alcoholic a year ago) fantasizing about the seemingly perfect couple living in a house her train passes each day. Things change when she sees something shocking there and becomes entangled in the mystery that unfolds.

It concerns her probable guilt in killing another woman because this lady was having an affair with her husband. But as it has turned out in other films, she did not kill anyone, and it was her own ex-husband who was the killer. The actress playing the local policewoman is also excellent in her role.
