This film is not currently scheduled to screen at New Park.
Woody Allen’s new film is set on Coney Island in the 1950s, where a lifeguard tells the story of a middle-aged carousel operator and his beleaguered wife.
We follow four characters whose lives intertwine amid the hustle and bustle of the Coney Island amusement park in the 1950s: Ginny (Kate Winslet – channelling Blanche DuBois), an emotionally volatile former actress now working as a waitress in a ‘clam house’; Humpty (Jim Belushi), Ginny's rough-hewn carousel operator husband; Mickey (Justin Timberlake), a handsome young lifeguard who dreams of becoming a playwright; and Carolina (Juno Temple), Humpty's long-estranged daughter, who is now hiding out from gangsters at her father's apartment.
When both Ginny and Carolina fall for the new lifeguard in town, fireworks are guaranteed. You will not be able to ignore the vintage Coney Island backdrop which is so beautifully created.
