What happened to patient 67?

"In 1954, two U.S. marshals investigate the disappearance of a patient from a hospital for the criminally insane on an island in Massachusetts. They run into trouble when they are deceived by others, a hurricane hits and when an inmate riot traps them on the island."

Actor Mark Rufallo said about Shutter Island:

"This could be one of Scorsese's great films. He gets to do everything he loves about film: noir, dream sequences, suspense, tough urban stuff. It’s absolute madness, twist upon twist."
Actor Mark Ruffalo

I can but believe him. And with Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead role I am sure that the movie Shutter Island will be a masterpiece in the genre!
