Shutter Island Synopsis


From Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese, and based on the best-selling thriller by Dennis Lehane, comes Shutter Island, a tale of haunting mystery and psychological suspense that unfolds entirely on a fortress-like island housing a hospital for the criminally insane.

The year is 1954, at the height of the Cold War, when U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels (three-time Academy Award nominee Leonardo Dicaprio) and his new partner Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo) are summoned to Shutter Island to investigate the implausible disappearance of a brilliant multiple murderess from a locked room within the impenetrable Ashecliffe Hospital. Surrounded by probing phychiatrists and dangerously psychopathic patients on the remote, windswept isle, they arrive into an eerie, volatile atmosphere that suggests nothing is quite what it seems.

With a hurricane bearing down on them, the investigation moves rapidly. Yet, as it mounts, the mysteries multiply. There are hints and rumors of dark conspiracies, sordid experimentation, repressive mind control and secret wards, but elusive proof. Moving in the shadows of a hospital haunted by the terrible deeds of its slippery inhabitants and the unknown agendas of its equally ingenious doctors, Teddy begins to realize that the deeper he pursues the investigation, the more he will be forced to confront some profound and devastating fears.

Scorsese’s top notch when it comes to making movies, maybe it’s too much to expect him to be just as good at picking movie posters. It looks like some cheap, January, PG-13 horror release starring Ashton Kutcher

The movie looks stylish and creepy and definitely a departure from what Scorsese has been up to lately. Is this a sign that Scorsese, late in his career, is still willing to experiment? Even if it's not, this movie looks completely distinctive and fascinating.

Memo to Leonardo DiCaprio: the vintage look suits you. The actor has spent time with Martin Scorsese (in Gangs of New York, The Aviator and The Departed) and in the 1950s (in Revolutionary Road), but now he's bringing it all together in Shutter Island
