New Scorsese movie opens

2010-03-12 00:00

OPENING at CineCentre in the Liberty Midlands Mall today are the psychological murder mystery Shutter ­Island and the romantic drama ­Remember Me.

Shutter Island, the latest film by ­Oscar-winning director Martin ­Scorsese, based on the best-selling thriller by Dennis Lehane, is a story that unfolds entirely on a fortress-like island housing a hospital for the criminally insane.

The year is 1954 and United States Marshal Teddy Daniels (Leonardo ­DiCaprio) and his new partner Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo) are summoned to Shutter Island to investigate the disappearance of a multiple murderess from a locked room in the impenetrable Ashecliffe Hospital.

Surrounded by probing psychiatrists and dangerously psychopathic patients, and with a hurricane bearing down on the island, the two officers, and Daniels in particular, are forced to confront some of their most profound fears.

Twilight star Robert Pattinson leaves the world of vampires and werewolves to star in Remember Me, the second new film opening in the city today.

Remember Me tells the story of Tyler Roth (Pattinson), who, years ­after his brother killed himself, still doesn’t know how to deal with his pain.

On a night out on the town, he confesses to a misdemeanor he didn’t commit and gets into trouble with a heavy-handed cop. In a lighthearted game of payback, Tyler flirts with the cop’s attractive daughter, Ally (Emile de Ravin), not realising they share common ground.

When Ally reveals that her mother was brutally murdered, Tyler sees how deeply he has buried his own private grief and he and Ally fall in love, enabling them to take the first tentative steps out of their anguish.
