Overview

Agnes is a woman who has reached her early 40s without ever venturing far from home, family or the tight-knit immigrant community in which she was raised by her widowed father. That begins to change in a quietly dramatic fashion when Agnes receives a jigsaw puzzle as a birthday gift and experiences the heady thrill of not only doing something she enjoys, but being very, very good at it.

Viewing Notes

Perhaps my favorite film of CCFF. As much a personal journey as a character study reflective of ourselves in the world, what is and what might be. Kelly Macdonald is brilliant. Really good Q&A with director Marc Turtletaub. Basically everything has meaning. Appreciate that attention to the craft and why he has moved into directing. I’m eager to see the Argentinian version of this story that came out in 2009.
