Rated 14 Accompaniment (Coarse Language) ~ Runs 103 minutes

Dir.: Marc Turtletaub, US

Kelly Macdonald, Irrfan Khan, David Denman

“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 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 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
