STARRING Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley and Michelle Williams
WRITTEN BY Laeta Kalogridis
DIRECTED BY Martin Scorsese

Leonardo DiCaprio teams up with The Departed director Martin Scorsese once again for this based-off-a-book thriller about two 50s-era U.S. Marshalls (DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo) on the search for a psychotic killer. Of course, it’s not that simple. Their investigation takes them to Shutter Island, an isolated hospital for the criminally insane. When a hurricane hits and an inmate riot breaks out, the two Marshalls find themselves trapped on the island where the eerie happenings lurk in every corner. I bet a sinking boat is looking pretty good about now, eh, Leo?
