Critics reviews

The film neither romanticizes nor pathologizes difference—the pleasure lies in feeling its lived complexity.

Like a bedtime cup of cocoa, Marc Turtletaub’s “Puzzle” has a soothing familiarity that quiets the mind and settles the spirit. It might also make you a little bit sleepy — which, in a multiplex reverberating with action-movie agita, can be an excellent effect for a movie to have. Which is not to say that this low-key, high-stakes domestic drama is boring — not at all. But it does have a narrative and performative rhythm that’s cozy-comforting.
