Double bill of feature thrillers adapted from American novels.
Martin Scorsese directs 'Shutter Island' (2009), an adaptation of the psychological crime novel by Dennis Lehane.
Federal Marshals Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo) are sent to Shutter Island, home to a psychiatric hospital for the criminally insane.
There, they must investigate the disappearance of multiple murderer Rachel Solando (Emily Mortimer), who appears to have simply vanished from the institution.
It soon becomes apparent, however, that no one on the island is telling the truth, and as Daniels becomes more embroiled in the sinister goings on, he begins to question everything, even his own sanity...
The Coen brothers' stripped-down, gritty and faithful adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's 'No Country for Old Men' (2007) follows a Vietnam vet as he desperately tries to give the slip to a relentless killer.
While out hunting in the barren wilds of Texas, Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) discovers the aftermath of a drugs deal gone wrong, with dead bodies, heroin and a case filled with $2million in cash.
Deciding to take the money, Moss says goodbye to his wife (Kelly MacDonald) and takes off to plan his next move.
It's not long before he discovers he's being followed by psychopathic ex-special forces hitman, Chigurh (Javier Bardem), who decides his victim's fate - guilty or not - on the toss of a coin.
As Chigurh raises the bodycount, gaining ever nearer to Moss, he in turn is hunted by local Sheriff Ed Bell (Tommy Lee Jones), a seen-it-all-before cop, who could do without the excitement.
