Plot: The movie unwraps in 1954 as the Second World War veteran Teddy Daniels who is also present-day federal marshal together with his new companion, Chuck, travel to Shutter Island, a mental asylum surrounded by water on all sides and accommodating the lunatics with criminal inclination. They are told to look into the sudden disappearance of a patient named Rachel Solando, a lunatic admitted to the mental hospital after she was guilty of murdering her three little ones.

To further complicate matters, Teddy hides a personal secret- the arsonist who killed his spouse is actually imprisoned on Shutter Island.

The best part of the film of course is its climax which still leaves many confused viewers wonder struck as to what the end of the movie actually was. Adapting the novel Shutter Island into a film sure might have been a very difficult task. The filmmakers have done extreme justice to the film. Each scene in the movie has been realistically tackled. The film has very well recreated the moments of insanity, confusion and horror. The suspense has been maintained till the film concludes.
Best Scene: The scenes of hallucination that Teddy Daniels undergoes when Dr. Cawley drugs him could never have been portrayed in a better fashion. These are sensitive scenes which if not handled properly can actually appear very bland. Michelle Williams has played her role very well. Even though her role has been small, it has been done fantastically. She has actually added life to the characterization of Teddy’s beautiful dead wife.
