About The Girl on the Train…

Emily Blunt, Rebecca Ferguson, Haley Bennett, Justin Theroux, Luke Evans, Allison Janney, Edgar Ramirez and Lisa Kudrow star in DreamWorks Pictures’ The Girl on the Train, from director Tate Taylor (The Help, Get on Up) and producer Marc Platt (Bridge of Spies, Into the Woods).

In the thriller, Rachel (Blunt), who is devastated by her recent divorce, spends her daily commute fantasizing about the seemingly perfect couple who live in a house that her train passes every day, until one morning she sees something shocking happen there and becomes entangled in the mystery that unfolds.

Based on Paula Hawkins’ bestselling novel, The Girl on the Train is adapted for the screen by Erin Cressida Wilson. Jared LeBoff joins Platt in production duties, and the executive producer is Celia Costas. The film will be released by Universal Pictures.  www.thegirlonthetrainmovie.com

Sep 22 – Girls JV Tennis

Acalanes 3 – Northgate 1
Playing in our opening Diablo Athletic League match, the JV Lady Dons came away with a 3-1 win over Northgate High.

Lauren Craig and Shannon McVay played a really competitive match at D-1. Although it is a cliché to say that the match was closer than the score would indicate, in today’s action it was true. While Shannon and Lauren recorded an 8-1 win, they played a number of hotly contested points and games on their way to the first Dons’ win of the day.

At D-2, Captains Maggie Curless and Jess Gerson, took control of their match and played consistently well in recording our second point with an 8-2 win.

Teaming for the first time this season, Molly Cronk and Milena Lucey communicated effectively and covered the court well to secure an 8-2 win.

Lady Dons Niki Palamountain and Skyler DeMartini were matched against a team of Northgate varsity players, who “doubled back” to play a second match. Skyler and Niki competed well throughout.

JV Sophia Scipi “played up” in a varsity doubles exhibition match with Lia Swan. Lia and Sophia were also paired for the first time and played a really competitive match racking up another Acalanes win by the score of 8-5.
