The Girl on the Train movie quotes follow the mystery of the drama film about a divorced woman who becomes obsessed with a missing persons disappearance investigation. Tate Taylor directed the thriller, which was adapted into a screenplay by Erin Cressida Wilson from a novel of the same name by Paula Hawkins. The Girl on the Train was released theatrically on October 7, 2016.

In The Girl on the Train, as she takes the train to work each day, Rachel (Emily Blunt) often thinks about the Megan (Haley Bennett) and Scott (Luke Evans) Hipwell, neighbors of Rachel's ex-husband Tom (Justin Theroux), and the perfect life Rachel thinks they live. So one day when Rachel witnesses Megan in a train tunnel fleeing with a strange man, then Megan comes up missing, Rachel becomes even more obsessed.

Rachel takes it upon herself to investigate the disappearance, something that actual investigator Detective Sgt. Riley (Allison Janney), finds especially curious. So as Rachel thinks she's helping solve the mystery, Riley digs into Rachel to reveal an unhealthy obsession with the Hipwells and the case, as well as Rachel's raging alcoholism. As the mystery begins to unravel, the true story of what happened is a shocking one, to say the least.

The Girl on the Train movie quotes give clues into what happened in this mystery, just as they help explain other films such as September 2016 releases like American Honey, Masterminds, Deepwater Horizon, and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.
