A tale of passion and betrayal plays out against the picturesque backdrop of 1950s Coney Island in Woody Allen’s Wonder Wheel, starring Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake, Jim Belushi and Juno Temple.
Four lives intertwine amid the hustle and bustle of 1950s Coney Island in Woody Allen’s Wonder Wheel, a searing tale of passion and betrayal. There’s Ginny (Kate Winslet), an emotionally volatile former actress now working as a waitress; Humpty (Jim Belushi), Ginny’s rough-hewn carousel operator husband; Mickey (Justin Timberlake), a handsome young lifeguard; and Carolina (Juno Temple), Humpty’s long-estranged daughter, who is hiding out from gangsters at her father’s apartment. Kate Winslet is magnificent in this gorgeous, bittersweet romance, lensed by master cinematographer Vittorio Storaro, who saturates Wonder Wheel with colour and light to create a lush, visual delight.
