  • Genre(s): Drama

Wonder Wheel tells the story of four characters whose lives intertwine amid the hustle and bustle of the Coney Island amusement park in the 1950s: Ginny (Kate Winslet), an emotionally volatile former actress now working as a waitress in a clam house; Humpty (Jim Belushi), Ginny’s rough-hewn carousel operator husband; Mickey (Justin Timberlake), a handsome young lifeguard who dreams of becoming a playwright; and Carolina (Juno Temple), Humpty’s long-estranged daughter, who is now hiding out from gangsters at her father’s apartment.

"Winslet delivers her most powerful, emotionally resonant performance in more than a decade. "
- Eric Kohn, Indiewire
"It's got movement and flow, it's got a vibrant sunset look of honky-tonk nostalgia, and it's got a bittersweet mood of lyrical despair that the film stays true to right up until the final note."
- Owen Gleiberman, Variety
"This is another earnest, stylish, deeply observant late work from Allen, with only subliminal appearances from the jokey humor that made him a marquee star."
- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
" Kate Winslet is a bonfire that burns through every scene."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Winslet is terrific, with a big, emotional, awards-bait scene at the end. Allen, meanwhile, does an expert job of recreating the old, long-gone Coney, the real New York locations helped along by some digital trickery."
- Stephen Whitty, New York Daily News
