Main Plot

Teddy Daniels and Chuck Aule, two US marshals, are sent to an asylum on a remote island in order to investigate the disappearance of a patient, where Teddy uncovers a shocking truth about the place.


  • Leonardo DiCaprio's character in Shutter Island is Teddy Daniels, a U.S. Marshal investigating a missing patient at a psychiatric hospital.
  • Emily Mortimer's character in Shutter Island is Rachel Solando, a former patient at the mental institution who disappeared mysteriously.
  • Mark Ruffalo's character in Shutter Island is named Chuck Aule, who is a U.S. Marshal investigating a missing patient.


In the ending of Shutter Island, it is revealed that the protagonist, Teddy Daniels, is actually a patient at the hospital and his search for a missing patient was a delusion created by the staff to help him confront his tragic past. Teddy accepts this truth and chooses to stay on the island, allowing the doctors to continue their treatment. The film concludes with Teddy undergoing a lobotomy, leaving the audience questioning the nature of reality and the morality of the institution.
