A lot or a little? The parents' guide to what's in this movie. Positive Messages Lots of betrayal and doubt. Rachel sometimes can't recall what happened the night before; when people tell her what she did, it's sometimes hard for her to believe them. But she learns to trust her own judgment, even when all the evidence seems against it.
She's bitter that he seems to have the perfect life, while she definitely doesn't. She eventually realizes that everything isn't as perfect as it looks. Other characters aren't what they seem; lots of flaws on display. Characters, both male and female, don't have a lot of depth; women are often portrayed as icy. Violence Several scenes of people getting drunk and violent, throwing bottles and other objects against the wall or knocking things off tables.
Also several fight scenes; people literally fight for their lives with whatever objects are nearby. They're pretty brutal and realistic and can be tough to stomach for some viewers. References to domestic abuse. Sex Couples kiss, cuddle, and have sex -- in bed, outdoors, and in the shower. Pretty graphic thrusting and grinding, but little sensitive nudity -- except for one key moment which isn't a love scene that shows a nude woman from behind.
Consumerism The main characters frequently use iPhones; one scene also features an iPad. She drinks in bars with strangers and acquaintances and also at home by herself. She's often nursing a water bottle filled with vodka and frequently gets sloppy-drunk and belligerent. 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.
