But as things turn increasingly bizarre, with a murderess on the loose, a hurricane battering the island, and staff who seem to want to cover something up, Teddy’s job proves more and more difficult. He begins to realize that nothing is quite what it seems on Shutter Island, perhaps not even himself. This thriller is absolutely brilliant.
