WONDER WHEEL

WONDER WHEEL
In the Coney Island amusement park during the 1950s, the lives of four people are changed by circumstance. Ginny (Kate Winslet), a former actress who makes a living as a waitress in a clam house, and her carousel operator husband Humpty (Jim Belushi) get an unexpected visit from his estranged daughter Carolina (Juno Temple), who is on the run from her gangster husband and the mob after turning informant. Unhappy in her own marriage, Ginny turns to handsome lifeguard Mickey (Justin Timberlake), who has ambitions of becoming a playwright. Angst and turmoil are the order of the day.

Solid performances can't overcome an anemic plot that's void of
