Turtletaub's direction and the trio of ace performances make "Puzzle" feel relatable and real; it's one of those movies where everything truly comes together.
Watching two people do a jigsaw puzzle could be fascinating in the right movie. This is not that movie.
"Puzzle" becomes a low-key pleasure, with all its pieces fitting together nicely.
The results are deceptively simple, finding complex emotions in a scenario that only signals sentimentality.
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.
Audience Reviews for Puzzle
For some life is a bitch, for others it's like a box of chocolates but for Agnes life is a puzzle spiritually and metaphorically. Kelli Macdonald plays Agnes perfectly as we witness her transform from June Cleaver to the next #MeToo icon. I would put her on a short list for an Oscar nomination. The story is simple but deep and the acting is superb all around. A beautiful jewel box of a film. (9-10-18)
