“There’s always a moment when your life changes, though you may not know it at the time…”
Documentary filmmaker Danny Hart (Henry Ian Cusick) boards a train at Grand Central Terminal, heading to upstate New York to interview the subjects of his latest project. A chance encounter with a mysterious young woman (Nicki Aycox) leads him on a journey of a very different sort, and within the blink of an eye, Hart is forced to leave his complacent life behind for a world in which the line between fantasy and reality is blurred. As the filmmaker tells his strange story to police detective Martin (Stephen Lang), Hart finds himself being questioned as the detective tries to discover whether Hart is the victim or the suspect in the strange affair.
On Friday, July 18 and Saturday, July 19, The Girl on the Train producers Rebecca Reynolds and Jim Carpenter will join us in person for Q & As after the 7:00 screenings. Reynolds has worked in film, television and theatre in New York City, Los Angeles, and around the country. A writer/producer for the long-running hit HBO comedy series Arli$$ starring Robert Wuhl, Reynolds also co-wrote and produced two HBO comedy specials with Wuhl, the first of which (“Assume the Position…” with Mr. Wuhl) earned them a nomination for a Writers Guild of America Award for Best Comedy/Variety.
Jim Carpenter is the co-founder of 8180 Films LLC, based in Leland, Michigan. He and his wife, Rebecca Reynolds, executive-produced the company’s first feature, the indie drama Christina, starring Nicki Aycox, Jordan Belfi, and Stephen Lang.
