The great playwright Eugene O'Neill looms as large over Woody Allen's latest film as the giant Ferris wheel that dominates the movie's Coney Island setting.Directed and written by Allen, the film explores the intersection of four lives – a struggling blue-collar couple (Jim Belushi and Kate Winslet), and two younger characters, Juno Temple as Belushi's estranged daughter, and Justin Timberlake as a wannabe playwright and summer lifeguard who becomes a love interest to both women.Allen has made Timberlake increasingly unreliable but warns us early that it may happen when the young hunk explains that he actually loves melodrama and larger-than-life characters.It's not Timberlake's fault that Allen makes him speak in a highly mannered manner, like a trying-too-hard playwright.Playing a onetime actress-cum-hard-bitten waitress at a clam shack, Winslet falls for Timberlake's much younger character.
