Preview, Downcast Kelly MacDonald finds clues and a connection in a “Puzzle” and the partner who can help her solve it

This trailer to “Puzzle” brings so many movies about unhappy women who have lived a life that has crushed their souls. The radiant Kelly MacDonald is that woman here, married, with kids and deep, deep depression that her lout of a husband doesn’t recognize.

Then she finds somebody who, like her, loves to solve puzzles. A team is formed. Irrfan Khan plays a version of the character he played in “The Lunchbox,” a man more deserving of a deep soul than the one that deep soul lives with. Oren Moverman co-wrote “Puzzle,” which opens July 18.
