Leonardo DiCaprio & Michelle Williams Star In 'Shutter Island'

Leonardo DiCaprio and Michelle Williams premiere Shutter Island at a special screening at the Ziegfeld Theatre on Wednesday (February 17) in New York City.

The 35-year-old actor recently spoke about his character, Teddy Daniels, and the role he plays in Shutter Island. “What struck me about doing this character and this story as a whole is how incredibly emotional it was and how much it explored the dark side of humanity. At the end of the day, this movie is really a character piece,” he told the Houston Chronicle.”

Leo continued and said, “All of the genre stuff — the Gothic horror and thriller aspects of it — sort of dissolve away as you get down to the core of the movie, which is human trauma and the ability to recover from that. Or not.”
