A couple of times recently Tracie (My Girlfriend) has talked about the movie Shutter Island, and how much she wants to talk to me about it. Now I haven’t seen this one and Tracie dosent want to ruin it by giving anything away so she wants me to watch it. It’s based on a book though, now for me that means I want to read the book first, so I’ve got it 🙂 I need to read it quickly though because I think Tracie would really like to have this chat about this movie.
The only thing that I know of this story is the title, and that Leonardo DiCaprio is in the movie. That’s it, I know nothing else and that’s how I’m going to read the book. I’m not going to read the blurb, I’m not going to google it, nothing. All I know is that people seemed to like the movie.
I like the idea of going in blind, in this day and age we think we know everything when we rarely do, but as I’ve said, I know nothing about this book, author, movie or the director of the movie. It feels a little liberating not having preconceptions 🙂

It’s a haunting film, and an incredible performance by Di Caprio. Gorgeous and I have two opposed interpretations of what actually happens! Enjoy… 🙂
It does sound fascinating. I’m hoping to start reading it tomorrow 🙂
I LOVED the film, but, no, i cant say ANYTHING….until you’ve seen it. Its probably completely different from the book though lol
I am itching to see it but I’ve got to read the book first. Adaptations are weird, you get some like 1984 which I thought was pretty loyal to the book but then World War Z which was nothing like the book x
