Puzzle

Wed. Sep. 12, 7:30 p.m. - trailer

Puzzle Agnes has been a devoted housewife for decades, living a quietly sheltered life in suburban Connecticut. When she’s gifted a thousand-piece puzzle for her birthday, Agnes finally discovers something she’s passionate about and unusually skilled at. Her hobby gradually evolves into a quest for self-awareness and leads her to team up with Robert, a fellow maverick who introduces her to an unexpected world of puzzle competitions. Agnes is soon swapping household chores for secretive train rides to New York City, where Robert helps her unlock a desire to finally march to the beat of her own drum for the first time in her life.

Veteran producer Marc Turtletaub directs this feature film with grace, subtlety, and compassion, bringing Oren Moverman’s delicate and moving character study to life. Kelly Macdonald shines as Agnes, infusing her with layers of uncertainty and earnestness as she tries to navigate her obligations and loyalties. Ultimately, Puzzle takes a life-affirming and introspective look at the sacrifices and intricate paths we must undertake to liberate our full potential. (113 minutes, rating PG)

Heart Beat Loud

Wed. Sep. 26, 7:30 p.m. - trailer

Heart Beat Loud Frank (Nick Offerman) and Sam (Kiersey Clemons) are the coolest of father/daughter duos. Frank owns a record store in Brooklyn, Sam is months away from heading off to UCLA pre-med, and every week the two get together for family jam sessions.

The only problem? Frank’s store is failing and he finds himself in need of a new career path. When he and Sam write a particularly catchy song during their weekly session, Frank has an idea. They should start a band! As Sam struggles to balance her studies, her budding romance with Rose (Sasha Lane) and her father’s sudden intense interest in creating music together, their relationship begins to crack. And when that catchy song goes viral, they are forced to make some major life decisions.

Featuring unforgettable original music and a supporting cast that includes Ted Danson and Toni Collette, Hearts Beat Loud is the star-studded, heartwarming musical of your dreams. (97 minutes, 14A, Tomatometre 91%)

The Children Act

Wed. Oct. 10, 7:30 p.m. - trailer

The Children Act Adapted by Booker Prize–winning author Ian McEwan from his own novel, this riveting drama stars two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson as a British High Court judge tasked with making a decision that will speak to our most fraught questions regarding religious tolerance — and could mean life or death for an innocent young man.

Judge Fiona Maye (Thompson) is married to her work, which has become a problem for her husband, Jack (Stanley Tucci), who announces that he wants to have an affair. Treating the matter more as an annoyance than a life-altering crisis, Fiona kicks Jack out and focuses on her current case. The question: should a couple who are Jehovah's Witnesses be permitted to deny a life-saving blood transfusion to their leukemia-stricken 17-year-old son (Fionn Whitehead)? Fiona finds herself taking unusual measures to determine her verdict — measures that will have far-reaching consequences.

Directed by Richard Eyre (Notes on a Scandal), The Children Act brims with intelligence, sophistication, and intrigue. The elevated tension places unusual focus on its protagonist's every word and gesture — a challenge Thompson meets with virtuosity. Her Fiona is a cauldron of conflicted feelings bubbling beneath a veneer of composure. As she finds herself sliding deeper into a mire of professional compromise and personal desperation, we come to empathize with her singular burden… and wait for the outcome with keen anticipation. (105 minutes, R)
