Kelly Macdonald is Astounding in This Powerhouse of a Movie
1 December 2018 | by larrys3See all my reviews

A powerhouse of a movie, led by the astounding nuanced performance of Kelly Macdonald. She portrays Agnes, a very introverted homemaker in a lifeless marriage, but who has a passion and genius for jigsaw puzzles.

Irrfan Khan is also exceptional in the role of Robert, who advertises for a jigsaw puzzle partner for an upcoming competition, and to which Agnes replies. The two will not only work well together on the puzzles, but will teach each other some valuable life's lessons as well.

David Denman is also totally believable here as Louie, Agnes' rather selfish lunkhead of a husband. I just thought the acting, direction, and writing in this film was spot on.

Overall, just an outstanding drama laced with humor and led by Macdonald's superb performance.
