Marc Turtletaub’s first narrative feature, Puzzle,
provides a closely observed portrait of Agnes, in her early 40s, who has never ventured far from home, family or the tight-knit immigrant community in which she was raised by her widowed father. That begins to change in a quietly dramatic fashion when Agnes receives a jigsaw puzzle as a gift and experiences the heady thrill of not only doing something she enjoys, but being very, very good at it.
