My Penny of View : The story is a psychological mystery-thriller film which adopted from the 2003 novel of the same name by Dennis Lehane. Teddy Daniels, US Federal Marshal together with his partner Chuck went to Shutter Island for investigation on disappearance of Rachel Solando (a mother who drown her own children) who was vanished in a locked room. Shutter Island was a place for those criminally insane people. Teddy started investigation on patients who were in the same group therapy session together with Rachel. Then a patient warned him to run away from the island. Police told Teddy that they have searched everywhere but they can't get Rachel. Teddy doubted and he insisted go to the lighthouse to reveal the truth. Teddy was told by a former patient of Shutter Island that the doctors were doing some human experiments on the patients cruelly. Meanwhile, he kept dreaming about his dead wife. What will happen to Teddy Daniels? What exactly happening on the Shutter Island?

Shutter Island was one of the best selling novel by Dennis Lehane. Plus you going to watch the Leonardo DiCaprio in action. His acting skill has developed well from 'Titanic' until this character in the film that required emotionally distracted performance. His acting able to pull out the character of Teddy Daniels from the book. Someone who always have deep thinking and haunted by his dead wife. Supporting actors like Mark Ruffalo and Ben Kingsley did a great job too.

Somehow, the story was predictable and it was kinda boring because it was a psychological but not thriller and mystery enough. I was prepared to be scared but I was disappointed especially I even can predict the truth behind the mystery. Well, again I was cheated by the trailer. Probably because I don't really into this kind of psychological movie. Further Leonardo DiCaprio is getting old and plump too.
