Leonardo DiCaprio, Emily Mortimer, Mark Ruffalo | In 1954, the next Marshal Teddy Daniels was appointed to investigate the disappearance of a patient from Ashecliffe Shutter Island Hospital in Boston. He insisted on an assignment to the island for personal reasons, but he soon thought he had been brought there as part of a conspiracy by a hospital doctor whose radical treatment ranged from unethical to illegal to evil. Teddy’s intelligent investigative skills were immediately promised, but the hospital rejected him because he had access to data that was suspected to reveal the case. When the hurricane broke communication with the country, the ‘more dangerous criminals’ escaped’ in confusion, and the confused and impossible clues doubled, Teddy began to question everything – his memory, his partner, even his own sanity .
