Wonder Wheel, the latest film written and directed by Woody Allen, is now available for streaming on Amazon’s Prime Service. The film was financed by Amazon, who hold the exclusive streaming rights in the US.
Wonder Wheel stars Kate Winslet in a powerhouse performance of a woman making desperate efforts to improve her life, with drastic consequences. The film also stars Jim Belushi, Justin Timberlake and Juno Temple. The whole thing is shot beautifully by Academy Award winner Vittorio Storaro.
Here’s the trailer:
This is Allen’s second film for Amazon following Café Society in 2016, and the TV series Crisis In Six Scenes. Both are also Amazon exclusives. To watch them, all you have to do is sign up for Amazon.
Outside of the US, the film is widely available on home formats – DVD, Blu-Ray and digital. Hopefully it will appear on more streaming services around the world. Winslet’s performance deserves to be seen by many more people.
I absolutely Love Woody Allen’s work but……tho choices in a few of his films give me curious wonder. Some miss casting. And maybe Give those with unseasoned talent few performance Tips. “Directing” if you please though I know that’s not Allen’s style, lately. Nevertheless I remain a Woody Allen fan and will till the day I Die 🙂
Wonder Wheel is an artistic masterpiece, the best script Woody Allen ever wrote or ever will again. On par with the plays of Tennessee Williams and Arthur Miller. The film is masterfully crafted and powerfully acted by Kate Winslet, who gave the best performance in her entire acting career. It is worth watching time and time again.
