Biff film Puzzle is a real crowd pleaser
The Bermuda International Film Festival is to screen an award-winning character drama featuring Trainspotting star Kelly MacDonald at its BIFFFlix monthly series.
Puzzle, which will be shown at the Speciality Cinema on Wednesday, tells the story of Agnes (Macdonald), a suburban wife who feels taken for granted, but who begins to find her true self when she becomes an expert at jigsaw puzzles.
Stepping out of her domestic bubble to pursue her new hobby, Agnes meets Robert, a wealthy, reclusive inventor who recruits her as his partner for an upcoming world jigsaw tournament. Ultimately, Agnes will decide for herself what comes next.
The film has been widely praised by critics for its charm, humour and heart-warming honesty.
It won the audience award at the Deauville Film Festival in France, and the Truly Moving Picture Award at the Heartland Film Festival in the United States.
The BIFFFlix monthly series features art house, foreign, documentary and indie films.
• The running time is 103 minutes. The film is rated “15” in Britain. Puzzle will screen on Wednesday at 6.30pm at the Speciality Cinema. Tickets priced $15 are on sale at www.ptix.bm, or at the cinema box office
