The was one scene in the entire movie that had smoking. It was a group of guys smoking cigarettes.
Summary of Movie:
The Girl on the Train is about a divorced woman who gets caught up in a missing persons investigation. She takes a train into work every day that passes by her old house and she sees a lot of things. She gets tangled up in the neighbourhood case which turns her life upside down.
The film was very interesting and kept you on your toes. It wasn’t predictable and I would definitely recommend it to friends.
The Tobacco Presence:
In the movie there was a group of guys smoking who looked like they were in their 20’s. They were strangers walking in a tunnel, and they blew their smoke into the main actress’s (Rachel) face who was distraught and lost. I don’t think the smoking was necessary because there are other ways the movie could have portrayed the message. The whole idea I think was to make Rachel feel like she was irrelevant and I think that could’ve been done by other actions such as spitting? I would not notice if smoking was taken out of the movie. I thought the guys smoking were rude. The movie did not show any real health effects or consequences of tobacco use.
