PUZZLE – Buy Tickets
Directed by Marc Turtletaub
Rated PG: coarse & sexual language
A woman who has a talent for assembling jigsaw puzzles sneaks away from her suburban town and goes to New York City, where she partners with a man for a puzzle tournament in Atlantic City. As she experiences independence for the first time, she begins to view her value and the pieces of her own life in a whole new light.
“Puzzle toes a tough line, managing to stay relentlessly good-hearted and deeply humane, even as Agnes herself plunges into deeper, more dramatic waters. It’s the kind of mid-life crisis story that so rarely centers on a woman and Macdonald shines in the role, riveting even in the quietest of moments.”
~ Kate Erbland, IndieWire
“Thanks to its most engaging, sympathetic stars, even the over-familiar path it takes lets us find the warmth in the first steps its characters take toward a richer life.”
~ Roger Moore, Movie Nation
