Shutter Island

My Rating: 4 stars


My mom had read this book and seen the movie a while ago and I was in the mood for some Leonardo DiCaprio, so I decided to watch this today. Basically, Leonardo DiCaprio plays a U.S. marshal named Teddy Daniels and his partner, Chuck Aule, who are both U.S. marshals go to Ashecliffe Hospital for the criminally insane on Shutter Island to find a missing patient, Rachel Solando. Shutter Island is located in Boston Harbor. Rachel was one of the more dangerous patients, for she was in the mental hospital in the first place for murdering her three children. Teddy Daniels has some problems of his own, too: his wife died in a fire, and he is searching for the man who deliberately set the house on fire.
The plot of this movie has so many twists and half of it is totally unexpected, especially the ending. It made me want to read the book. At first, the movie was really confusing and a little hard to follow, but in the end I really loved it. If you watch it, remember: everything is not what it seems.

The book is by Dennis Lehane.
