‘Wonder Wheel’ is both written and directed by Woody Allen. The film takes place at a Coney Island amusement park back in the 1950’s. We follow four characters, Ginny (Kate Winslet) is a failing actress working as a waitress whose married to Humpty (Jim Belushi) a carousel operator. Ginny is in love with Mickey (Justin Timberlake) a lifeguard who wants to become a playwright, but the story really gets going when Carolina (Juno Temple) comes into play. She has been hiding from gangsters and she happens to be Humpty’s estranged daughter.
The film looks gorgeous with a mix of the feeling of classic films, Woody’s well writing, and Cinematographer Vittorio Storaro‘s beautiful lighting and framing. With all that and this all-star cast, we may be in for another classic.
‘Wonder Wheel’ releases December 1, 2017.
