A wonderful performance by Kelly Macdonald provides the extraordinary heart and soul to Puzzle, a delightful film about a woman who achieves her potential after a lifetime of looking after others. Charming, funny, delicate and brimming with a heart-warming sense of honesty, Puzzle is a gentle gem of a film.

Directed with real compassion by Marc Turtletaub, the film opens beautifully as Agnes (Macdonald) is shown readying her house for a birthday party. Everyone is having fun, before Agnes emerges with a large, lit, birthday cake. The irony is that it is her birthday. Agnes’s life is very small, but the opening of one gift containing a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle changes all of that.

Agnes discovers she is a natural at puzzles: a quick worker who can see patterns and is innately good at math. She escapes her stifling blue-collar life—and husband (David Denman) and two sons—and heads to New York to find a shop specializing in jigsaw puzzles. From there, she ends up meeting Robert (a charismatic Irrfan Khan), a champion puzzler who needs a new puzzle partner for a national competition. Agnes starts to come of age in so many ways, becoming the woman she always had the potential to be.
–Edinburgh International Film Festival
“The results are deceptively simple, finding complex emotions in a scenario that only signals sentimentality.” –Globe and Mail
“There’s sublime simplicity in this jigsaw-puzzle-as-life metaphor, masterfully directed by Marc Turtletaub.” –Toronto Star
