Follow this film on GoWatchIt

Agnes has been a devoted housewife for decades, living a quietly sheltered life in suburban Connecticut. When she’s gifted a thousand-piece puzzle for her birthday, Agnes finally discovers something she’s passionate about and unusually skilled at. Her hobby gradually evolves into a quest for self-awareness and leads her to team up with Robert, a fellow maverick who introduces her to an unexpected world of puzzle competitions. Agnes is soon swapping household chores for secretive train rides to New York City, where Robert helps her unlock a desire to finally march to the beat of her own drum for the first time in her life.

Veteran producer Marc Turtletaub directs this feature film with grace, subtlety, and compassion, bringing Oren Moverman’s delicate and moving character study to life. Kelly Macdonald shines as Agnes, infusing her with layers of uncertainty and earnestness as she tries to navigate her obligations and loyalties. Ultimately, Puzzle takes a life-affirming and introspective look at the sacrifices and intricate paths we must undertake to liberate our full potential.
