The film, which also stars Irrfan Khan, is the directorial debut of 'Little Miss Sunshine' producer Marc Turtletaub.

Puzzle, starring Kelly Macdonald, will open the 72nd edition of the Edinburgh International Film Festival, which is set to run June 20-July 1.

The film — which first bowed at Sundance — will have its international premiere on June 20 in Scotland, with Sony set to release the film across the U.K. later in the summer. 

The directorial debut of Little Miss Sunshine producer Marc Turtletaub, Puzzle sees Macdonald (Trainspotting, Boardwalk Empire) play Agnes, 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. But all that changes when she receives a jigsaw puzzle as a birthday gift and is eventually recruited to join a world jigsaw tournament. Irrfan Khan also stars. 

Both Macdonald and Turtletaub are set to attend the festival.
