Penned by Dennis Lehane, who gave us Mystic River, Shutter Island gives us the fourth collaboration between Scorsese and DiCaprio. In 1954, World War II veteran and now U.S. Federal Marshal Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) grabs at an opportunity to look into the disappearance of a patient from Boston's Shutter Island Ashecliffe Hospital; the water-bound mental hospital housing the criminally insane. Teddy has been hoping for some time for a chance at a closer look at the notorious hospital and trying to unravel the goings-on within its thick and ancient walls. And after confronting Dr. Cawley (Ben Kingsley), soon enough Teddy starts to suspect the staff of unethical, even illegal, to downright sinister torturous radical treatment methods that they use to experiment on patients. The most terrible indicators seem to point to the spooky Ward C- a section dedicated to the most unpleasant of those incarcerated. But then again Teddy starts doubting everything; his friends, his memory and even his own sanity...
