Wonder Wheel

Published on November 22nd, 2017

Thanks to our friends at eOne we have ten in-season double passes to give away to the new Woody Allen that releases on December 7, Wonder Wheel. It stars the sublime Kate Winslet in a critically acclaimed performance, as well as Justin Timberlake and Jim Belushi.

Here’s a brief synopsis:

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 (Winslet), an emotionally volatile former actress now working as a waitress; Humpty (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.

Directed by Woody Allen and starring Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake, Jim Belushi and Juno Temple

Here’s what the critics have to say:

“Kate Winslet is stunning in Woody Allen’s gorgeous ’50s romance. Winslet delivers her most powerful, emotionally resonant performance in more than a decade. It’s among the very best moments in her extensive career.”


“Kate Winslet shines. A classy showcase for Kate Winslet’s dramatic range in a part, not dissimilar to Blanchett’s, that should bring her a raft of awards nominations.”

Screen Daily

““Wonder Wheel” is a kaleidoscope of lights and delights with best-in-class cinematography, perfect casting and impeccable period detail. Kate Winslet has rarely been better in a part that lets her talent unfurl and bloom in new ways. The most visually stunning film of the director’s decades-long career. Entirely beautiful.”
