The Monday Night Film Series presents, 'Wonder Wheel' on Monday, March 19 at 7:30 p.m. in Tilley Hall, 102.

Four peoples' lives intertwine amid the hustle and bustle of the Coney Island amusement park in the 1950s: Ginny (Kate Winslet), 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.

"It's got movement and flow, it's got a vibrant sunset look of honky-tonk nostalgia, and it's got a bittersweet mood of lyrical despair that the film stays true to right up until the final note." - Owen Gleiberman,  Variety

This term, 15 limited release, independent foreign and Canadian films will be shown. Admission is $8/film, but a half-yearly $12 student film society membership reduces admission cost to $5/film. The series is open to all. Memberships are available at Tilley Hall 102 every Monday night.

The NB Film Co-op, in partnership with the UNBF Faculty of Arts and the Toronto Film Festival, presents the series.
