“Turtletaub goes deep on character, allowing Macdonald and Khan to reveal details of their lives, and also their dreams and fears, in a manner that’s as natural as the charming piano score.” – Peter Howell, Toronto Star
“How wonderful it is to see this fine actress carry a film and carry it so beautifully.” – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
“In “Puzzle,” Macdonald has finally found a movie that she doesn’t need to steal, because it belongs to her completely.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
“A million tiny revelations make up one massive arc, and Kelly Macdonald positively radiates hope and joy throughout that process.” – Christy Lemire, RogerEbert.com
“Moverman’s script, based on the Argentinian film Rompecabezas by Natalia Smirnoff, is graceful with the details and its characters.” – Kate Erbland, IndieWire
