Dear faithful readers,
I am totally into movies lately. For some reason I cannot get enough of them (for example I thought The Blind Side was brilliant while Legion was hilariously bad). And I’m always on the lookout for a new contender. Shutter Island looks like it might satisfy a) my snobbish movie tendencies and b) it just might be good.
Shutter Island is the latest movie by Martin Scorsese starring Leonardo Di Caprio, Michelle Williams, Ben Kingsley and Mark Ruffalo.
It is based on a book of the same name written by Dennis Lehane. The story is set in 1954 Massachusetts where US Marshalls are investing a patient who escaped from the hospital for the criminally insane. The trouble strikes when hurricane hits the area and patients manage to escape.
Shutter Island is described as thriller which I think makes a change for Scorsese who is all about big epic stories (or at least in my mind he is). I have to say I’m quite excited about this one, although to be fair I’m not the world biggest Leonardo di Caprio fan. But I think this one is definitely worth checking out.
See trailer below.
