Girl on the Train

Brilliant: the 2015 novel The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins — with its archetypal unreliable narrator and its explorations of responsibility and consciousness, justice and truth, love and oneness.

Ditto: the 2016 film — dense, dark, and poetic, screenplay by Erin Cressida Wilson who also wrote the script for the 2002 Secretary.

Striking: the scene near the end of the movie, as character Megan is told by Dr Abdic:

You don't have to be afraid of being alone.
You're not alone.

Echoes: running solo in the wilderness — deep into the night, surrounded and embraced by the universe, alone and not alone.
