||A divorced woman regularly takes the train between her home and central New York, passing the house where she and her former husband lived. She also sees another couple together, and then the female of the other couple with another man. She is a drunk and gets off the train to confront this unfaithful female with far reaching results.
||Some time on trains with narration. A bit of sex. Quite a bit of drunken stumbling about (difficult to watch). Much weighty discussion including quite a bit of time with a psychiatrist and some unpleasant violence.
||The critics did not seem to like this, maybe because it does not quite hold together, and some aspects of the plot stretch the suspension of disbelief to the limit, but hell, it’s a film. Although thinking about it some of the events, necessary for the plot, are extremely unlikely and in order to get us to believe stuff the presentation is very tricky. But still watchable.
