Wordplay

When I first heard about the movie Wordplay, I thought it was about the New York Times Crossword puzzle itself and the people who solve it (the regular people and the famous like Jon Stewart, Ken Burns, and Bill Clinton to name a few). Don’t get me wrong, while the film is about the puzzle (how it’s constructed and by whom), it’s mainly the story of the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament and the puzzle fanatics who enter the contest. It is something not too many people know about, but really, I was hoping they would make the movie more about the puzzle.
