Puzzle

Underrated Scottish actress Kelly Macdonald (Trainspotting, "Boardwalk Empire") stars in this remake of the Argentine romance Rompecabezas. She's a restless, borderline depressed suburban New Jersey wife and mother regularly taken for granted by her loutish family. When she rediscovers her passion for solving jigsaw puzzles (yeah, jigsaw puzzles), she journeys to New York City to team up with a "puzzle champion" (Indian movie icon Irrfan Khan) so she can become part of the "competitive puzzle solving" scene. Can he help her solve her romantic woes as easily as he helps her solve jigsaw puzzles? This earnest, but timid little movie is perfect for the tiny Venn diagram overlap of people who love romance and people who love jigsaw puzzles. 103 minutes R.
