Wonder Wheel

A good performance by Kate Winslet that bordered on over-maniacal against a more-exaggerated-than-usual Woody Allen dramedy on Fate and Love. Jim Belushi held his own with Winslet and Juno Temple was an interesting revelation, however Justin Timberlake was miscast and distracting with his foundation-caked complexion, botoxed and doll-eyed blank stares. Perhaps it was the Allen controversy, but Winslet does deserve some recognition for her work here as a complicated woman/mother/wife/lover. She had two stunning monologues - in single takes no less - that showcased her talent, but perhaps her lack of campaigning amidst the current climate was a double-edged sword for her.
