PUZZLE
(R) 103 min
Sep 21 - 24, 5:30 & 7:45
Lively and unexpectedly delightful, this is a closely observed character drama directed by Marc Turtletaub, the producer of Little Miss Sunshine and Loving, and written by Oren Moverman (The Messenger, Love and Mercy), an English language remake of Argentine Natalia Smirnoff’s 2010 film. Kelly Macdonald (Trainspotting, No Country for Old Men) stars as Agnes, an undervalued stay-at-home mom tending to her clueless mechanic husband Louie and two grown sons. When she receives a jigsaw puzzle for a gift and completes it quickly, she discovers the thrill of success and the satisfaction of having a talent. She brazenly answers an ad for a competitive puzzle solver, meeting the charismatic Robert (Irrfan Khan, Life of Pi) a wealthy Indian inventor, and sending her life in a new direction.
