Colin Farrell’s Sugar bears striking similarities to Leonardo DiCaprio’s 2010 hit Shutter Island;  Explore details – PINKVILLA

This article contains spoilers for the Apple TV+ series Sugar.

A new show on Apple TV+ called Sugar has a story that closely resembles Leonardo DiCaprio’s 2010 film Shutter Island. In both stories, the main character, played by Colin Farrell in Sugar and DiCaprio in Shutter Island, is a detective who tries to solve the mystery of a missing woman.

But here’s the thing: Just like in Shutter Island, where DiCaprio’s character discovers he’s living in a made-up reality to deal with his past, it seems like something similar could happen in Sugar.

The Sugar series has similarities to Leonardo DiCaprio’s Shutter Island

In Sugar, the main character, John Sugar, acts like a detective but may not really be one. He experiences strange moments where he imagines violent things and needs to take medication to calm down. This suggests he might have a mental health issue like DiCaprio’s character in Shutter Island.

One review of the series suggested: “Just as Teddy eventually learns that he created an alternate identity for himself to deal with the trauma of his wife’s murder after she killed their three children, Sugar might ultimately realize that their perception of reality has been modified. been distorted by past events.”




Sugar series receives low audience rating

Although Sugar is receiving good reviews from critics, viewers don’t seem to be as interested as they were in Shutter Island. It has achieved an audience score of 67% to date.

Some people think it might be due to the infamous Shutter Island directed by Martin Scorsese and so expectations were high. But even though Sugar is off to a slower start with audiences, it’s still too early to tell how good it will be since only a few episodes have aired.

It’s important to remember that, unlike Shutter Island, the Sugar series can end differently. The first episodes of the series hinted that there could be a twist, just like in Shutter Island. John Sugar’s investigation into a missing girl named Olivia could be a way for him to cope with the death of his sister. This suggests that his idea of ​​what is real might be disrupted because of his past.

The series Sugar premiered on Apple TV+ on April 5, 2024. New episodes are released every Friday on the platform.
