'Puzzle' is Well Made, but a Few Pieces are Missing

MOVIE REVIEW
Based on the film Rompecabezas, Puzzle is one of those little-known independent films that sneaks into theaters with little to no fanfare, although the fact that it is being promoted “from the producer of Little Miss Sunshine” should help it get noticed somewhat. Puzzle is a quiet, little film about a woman who discovers that jigsaw puzzles are the key to changing her life. While the subject matter doesn’t sound all that exciting, the film really isn’t about puzzles but instead about one finding their voice, or so it appears.

Some people are just full of surprises. Take singer Jamie Grace for instance. She already has a lifetime of experiences during her 21 years on this earth and she is just getting started. The GRAMMY® nominee and Best New Artist Dove Award winner will be releasing her second album, “Ready to Fly” on January 28 while her new single, “Beautiful Day” is already doing fine on the air thank you very much. None of this would have seemed possible ten years ago.


When Jamie was just nine years old, she began twitching here and there occasionally. The strange symptoms would affect her eyes, neck, arms and legs. She began to stutter. Her situation progressively got worse and by the age of 11, Jamie was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome, a situation that she still struggles with today, but to a lesser degree.
