Standout, signature scenes make for moments of great viewing power but can’t hide the flaws of an untidy, overlong story.
Perhaps the “Wonder” in "Wonder Wheel" is that anyone agreed to produce something so tired, joyless, and uninspired.
A study in mood and emotion, about using the canvas of film to convey to the audience the inner feelings of the characters.
Although the surface tone is breezy and cheeky, there’s a lot going on beneath the facade.
Almost seems too bizarre to be true, even though it is - an inadvertent success story that illustrates there’s more than one way to stardom.
An adult fairy tale that encourages the same emotional responses often engendered by such simple, heartfelt stories.
From its imagination-tinged opening to its Kumbaya ending, "Wonder" never forgets that its mission is to provide a non-threatening, warm-and-fuzzy experience.
The story is surprisingly unfocused and plunges into quasi-thriller territory that relies on a series of hard-to-swallow contrivances.
