25 Boston Road, Chelmsford
In case you missed it in theaters but still want to enjoy the crazy ride in a group setting, Shutter Island – Martin Scorsese’s hit adaptation of the eerie Dennis Lehane novel – will screen at the Chelmsford Public Library tonight. Praised by many critics as another Scorsese suspense classic, Shutter Island follows federal marshal Teddy Daniels in his journey to an isolated mental hospital to investigate the recent disappearance of a patient admitted for murdering her three children. Questioning the head of the institution and his staff, Daniels begins to suspect there is much more to the story than he has been told. Eventually stranded on the island with his partner due to a hurricane, Daniels must unlock the secrets of Shutter Island as his own sanity begins to unravel. The outstanding ensemble cast includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, and Max von Sydow.
Lehane’s Shutter Island was selected as the book of choice for Chelmsford’s 2010 “One Book, One Chelmsford” community reading extravaganza. Lehane held court at Chelmsford High School’s Performing Arts Center on June 13, captivating the audience with his stories and quick wit. In addition to Shutter Island, other Lehane novels will also be featured in the “One Book” programming. Snuggle up to some suspense this summer!
