Dir. Marc Turtletaub. USA, 2018. 1h 43m. Starring Kelly Macdonald, Irrfan Khan, David Denman, Austin Abrams, Liv Hewson, Lori Hammel, Bubba Weiler, Barry Godin, Myrna Cabello.

Hemmed in by a life of unfulfilling domestic chores, a suburban New York mother tastes the freedom of independence through competitive jigsaw puzzling. A modest and touching character study with a captivating performance by Kelly Macdonald.

‘Lovely, subtle work from Macdonald, as her character blossoms and her horizons broaden, gives the film a warmth and magnetism.’ ★★★★ Wendy Ide, The Observer

‘Here is modest craft and genuine heart here, not to mention an eye-catching centrepiece: an actor growing more certain of herself, and more capable than ever of holding an entire picture together’ Mike McCahill, The Guardian
