Film Summary: PUZZLE is a closely observed portrait of Agnes, who has reached her early 40s without ever venturing far from home, family or the tight-knit immigrant community in which she was raised by her widowed father. That begins to change in a quietly dramatic fashion when Agnes receives a jigsaw puzzle as a birthday gift and experiences the heady thrill of not only doing something she enjoys, but being very, very good at it.
What the critics are saying:
A million tiny revelations make up one massive arc, and Kelly Macdonald positively radiates hope and joy throughout that process.
The acting is uniformly good, but Macdonald is excellent. She captures the frustrations Agnes didn’t even know she had, and her performance is authentic throughout.
– Arizona Republic
gnes is one of the most respectable and believable and satisfyingly human characters in a fiction film this year.
– Film School Rejects
Macdonald… refuses to let Agnes be an easy avatar for midlife longing and suburban discontent. With her fierce, strange energy at the center, the film builds quietly toward its own small revelations, piece by piece.
