Who knew that competitive puzzling was a thing? I have always liked Kelly Macdonald (Agnes). She is wonderful as a woman trying to reinvent herself after her children are grown (though still in the nest). David Denman (Louie) is charming as her confused and loving husband. Irrfan Khan (Robert) is convincing as her puzzle partner who realizes he needs her help to achieve his goals. The subplots with her children add a lot to the film.
Agnes, taken for granted as a suburban mother, discovers a passion for solving jigsaw puzzles which unexpectedly draws her into a new world – where her life unfolds in ways she could never have imagined.
