Kate Winslet believes Woody Allen understands women

  • Kate Winslet believes Woody Allen understands women

There are only a limited number of actresses in the English language that are that deep and that great. Despite warning us of his love of Eugene O'Neill's plays and "the human condition, the tragic human condition, how we have to lie to ourselves in order to live", Mickey narrates an intriguing film into a tragically predictable place. The relationship is her way out. (The director was never formally charged with a crime, and has consistently denied the allegations.) Since then, Dylan has been a writer and advocate for sexual assault survivors, and she has spoken out tirelessly about Allen having allegedly sexually abused her on numerous occasions, which lead to a massive rift in their family and the Hollywood community as a whole.

Timberlake is the narrator, but he isn't the star. The film's embattled quartet consists of Humpty (Jim Belushi), a loutish beer-drinking sap who runs the Coney Island carousel, his estranged adult daughter Carolina (Juno Temple), sexy lifeguard Mickey, and most importantly, Humpty's long-suffering wife Ginny, a frustrated former actress (Winslet). There is nothing understated about Ginny, and as she grows increasingly shrill and mad with jealousy, the trajectory of the film seems to lay itself out. In a nutshell, she made a mistake marrying into the Mafia at a young age and is now a marked woman, now willing to undertake college courses to become an English teacher.

Maybe in Allen's world.

Luckily, for those who struggle with the judge-the-art-separately-from-the-artist thing, "Wonder Wheel" won't be keeping anyone up at night. Exhausted of both poverty and Humpty, Ginny begins a summertime fling with Mickey the lifeguard, and it's all going swimmingly until he spies Carolina. Juno Temple enters the scene, in a pretty dress, looking the embodiment of 1950s young womanhood.

In the piece titled Why Has The #MeToo Revolution Spared Woody Allen?

Who Cares If I Liked It?

. "It works for Woody Allen still". The choice to boycott, or at least to ignore, anything with his name attached seems perfectly sensible and legitimate. On the other hand, Allen isn't giving up. What is he on about? Although Allen's screenplay takes great pains to try and explain a couple of times why moving back in with your dad in Coney Island is a smart way to hide from the NY mafia, I remain unconvinced. Some have suggested that Mickey's rejection of the elder Ginny once Carolina comes into the picture reflects Allen's rejection of Mia Farrow in favour of his step-daughter Soon-yi Previn, but I think that's a reach. This wasn't always true.

With a shroud of controversy surrounding the film's famous director, a highly capable cast of mostly solid performances, and a bleak story arch, Wonder Wheel has more than enough spokes for any filmgoer to get caught up in and taken for a ride. (Weinstein has denied allegations of non-consensual sex.) But, she noted, all three women have avoided condemning Allen over her allegations.

Her response fell in line with what many actors who enjoy working with Allen but who wish to separate themselves from the allegations have said. It might have been a stage play, but that wouldn't have saved it from feeling false. It's important that we don't stand for this and that we don't focus on one or two or three or four stories, it's important that we focus on humanity in general and say, 'This is unacceptable.' " But on the subject of Allen, she said, "It's very unsafe to factor in things you don't know anything about. On Tuesday, Time magazine named "The Silence Breakers" as its 2017 Person of the Year, recognizing the women (and some men) who came forward with stories of sexual abuse. Those days appear to be gone; he can still attract a star like Winslet, but she spends two-thirds of the film playing off the unworthy likes of Belushi and Timberlake.
