About the Film:

Producer Marc Turtletaub (Loving, Little Miss Sunshine) makes his directorial debut with Puzzle, a gently humanist story of an unassuming housewife who comes to recognize her unspoken hopes and dreams through the unlikely avenue of competitive jigsaw-puzzling.

Agnes (Kelly Macdonald; Goodbye Christopher Robin, Anna Karenina) lives a quiet, monotonous life waiting hand-and-foot on her husband, Louie (David Denman, Logan Lucky; Men, Women and Children), and her two adult sons. After an evening of birthday celebrations — she cleans, cooks, and prepares
the house for what turns out to be her own party — she notices a gift that strikes her interest: a jigsaw puzzle of a world map. After finishing the puzzle in remarkable time, Agnes soon answers a “partner wanted” advertisement from puzzle champion Robert (Lunchbox star, Irrfan Khan). As Agnes learns more about her gift at assembling the increasingly difficult puzzles Robert challenges her with, she also begins to give voice to her long-dormant desires.

“Turtletaub goes deep on character, allowing Macdonald and Khan to reveal details of their lives, and also their dreams and fears, in a manner that’s as natural as the charming piano score.” —Peter Howell, Toronto Star

With: Kelly Macdonald, Irrfan Khan, Austin Abrams
