Puzzle

Critics Consensus

Puzzle transcends its quirky premise with honest emotion -- and Kelly Macdonald, whose nicely understated performance proves she's too often underutilized.

    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)
