'Wonder Wheel' (Dec. 1st)
Woody Allen's latest, set in in the Coney Island of his youth, tees up Kate Winslet to delivers a tour de force performance as a 1950's housewife who
cheats on her carousel-operator husband (Jim Belushi). The object of her affection: a stud lifeguard, played by Justin Timberlake. Conflict ensues when a stepdaughter (Juno Temple) shows up to see her dad and falls for
the lifeguard herself. The film has laughs and the richly evocative
atmosphere of the fabled amusement park, but it's the dramatic sparks
you'll remember. And watching Winslet fall to pieces is a rollercoaster
ride all by itself.
