A detective (Kevin Bacon) investigates the brutal beating and murder of the daughter of a childhood friend (Sean Penn), then questions a second friend (Tim Robbins).
Martin Scorsese's latest, Shutter Island, was originally a project for director David Fincher, who has made a career out of dark, psychological thrillers like Seven. It's an adaptation of the book written by Dennis Lehane (Mystic River).
Shutter Island stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo as U.S. Marshals sent to investigate the disappearance of a patient from a mental hospital where the doctors (Ben Kingsley and Max von Sydow) are performing radical treatments.
