IMDB's summary: "A divorcee becomes entangled in a missing persons investigation that promises to send shockwaves throughout her life."
My short summary: "Drunk lady creepily watches a couple from a train, lady from couple goes missing, drunk lady decides to turn detective...madness & crazyness ensues."
First of all, let me say that I loved the book. I actually missed it when I was done reading it. I thought it was well written & just when you think it couldn't have anymore twists, it throws in one more. However, I did figure out who the "bad person" was well in advance.
On to the movie, I went & saw it on Monday with a friend who also read the book & we both agreed that it went from the pages to the screen well. My only complaint is that in the book, Rachel is much more beaten down & her drinking is really a problem.
I'm in total lust of Luke Evans & I think that he played Scott Hipwell with such intensity that I was even afraid. He was more intense on screen than he was in the book, that's for sure. Plus, I got to see his bare bottom. Awhoo hoo!
