The Girl on the Train Synopsis

Jobless, soul-searching and rollerblading Jeanne (Rosetta’s Cannes Film Festival Best Actress Winner Emilie Dequenne) lives in a Paris suburb with her widowed mother Louise (Deneuve), who makes a living as a baby-sitter. Louise helps her daughter get a job with her old flame Samuel Bleistein (Michel Blanc, Monsieur Hire, Grosse Fatigue), now a famous lawyer and Jewish activist. When Jeanne’s budding relationship with aspiring wrestler Franck (Nicolas Devauchelle) is shattered by a violent turn of events, Jeanne and Bleistein’s opposite worlds get set on a collision course, as the film becomes a complex psychological drama raising issues of race, religion and identity. Based on the play by Jean-Marie Besset.
