Puzzle

Agnes (Kelly Macdonald), who has reached her early 40s without ever venturing far from home, family, or her tight-knit immigrant community, begins to change in a quietly dramatic way when she receives a jigsaw puzzle as a birthday gift and experiences the heady thrill of not only doing something she enjoys, but being extremely good at it. Pursuing her new hobby, she meets Robert (Irrfan Kahn), a reclusive inventor who recognizes her talent and recruits her as his partner for an upcoming world jigsaw tournament. Each day takes her further along on the road to a new understanding of herself and her strengths. With charming and funny honesty, Puzzle charts the awakening of a woman who achieves her potential after a lifetime of looking after others. “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.”—Indiewire. Preview screening open to Silver Screen Club members and their guests.
