You would have a better chance of getting an answer if you changed your header "Need The Name Of This Movie".  The advice given to questioners specifically says you should not use a generic query like "what movie is this?" because this could cover any question at all, given that this is a site where ALL the questions are asking this. I would suggest you put your statement "A kid goes on a train . . ." as your header (as the advice says you should - did you not read the instructions before posting?).

Then you could give more information below: what language was the film in? what country was it set in? what time period was it set in - present day, current for movie's release date, historical or what? was the kid black/white, big/little, well-dressed/poor, brash/shy? what style of movie was it - horror/scifi/fantasy/action/adventure/mystery/crime/thriller/emotional drama/adult/kids ?
