Book Tickets

In this charming, romantic drama, a whole world opens up for suburban mother Agnes (Kelly Macdonald, Trainspotting) when she discovers that she’s a jigsaw puzzle genius.

Agnes appears to lead a contented life as a devoted housewife and mother, except she’s taken for granted by her husband and children. A chance birthday gift of a thousand-piece puzzle leads Agnes to discover that she is exceptionally skilled at putting them together. She becomes passionate about puzzles, leading her to the enigmatic Robert (Irrfan Khan, The Lunchbox, SFF 2014) who introduces her to the world of puzzle competitions. Gradually Agnes discovers a sense of purpose and self-worth that she has long been lacking. Directed by producer Marc Turteltaub (Little Miss Sunshine, SFF 2006), Puzzle is a superb vehicle for the talents of Macdonald and Khan, and a sweet and empathetic film about finally finding independence.
