Anyone Looking Forward to Seeing Shutter Island?

Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane

Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane

Shutter Island was the first Dennis Lehane novel I read (in 2004, I think), and I was completely blown away by the book. It is one of the best of its class (thrillers) throwing together a lot of scary elements such as an isolated island, a raging hurricane, a locked room, secret codes, a mental hospital, and rumors of mysterious medical experiments.

This book enthralled me when I read it, and I am extremely thrilled to see that it is coming out as a movie starring Leonardo diCaprio, and directed by Martin Scorsese. See trailer at the top of this post.

This seems like a perfect movie vehicle for Leonardo diCaprio, and I just cannot wait for it to hit cinema halls here.

How about you? Anyone excited to watch this movie? What did you think of the book?

Gosh! I am talking more about movies than books these days!! That’s new for me!

  • The movie was simply fantastic. The ending was absolutely unbelievable 🙂 The Martin Scorcese + Leonardo combination was simply gr8. We had downloaded the movie in March – after reading amazing reviews, a mnth after it was released in the US.

    • @Casey: knew it would be good. But there were so many so-so reviews that I was beginning to wonder.

      Glad you liked it. Will look out for it as well 🙂

  • Oh, this sounds wonderful!

    • Thank you…this movie could be the movie of the year for me 🙂 I am so looking forward to it

    OH I love DiCaprio & Martin Scorsese combined……. I would love to read the book too.

    • Oooh…yes, and I guarantee that you are not going to be able to guess the ending 🙂
