Shutter island

The trailer for Shutter Island is out. It is based on one of Dennis Lehane's non-series novels and I quite liked it. It has similar emotional heft to Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River, the two other books of his that have been made into films. I am hopeful for Darkness Take My Hand, but I may be waiting a while.

While Gone Baby Gone was a top rate crime procedural and Mystic River is a classic, Irish Gothic tragedy, this one is a straight up thriller, with secrets piled on secrets until the big whammies. I have high hopes.
