GETTING A CLUE: “My wife and I are big fans of the puzzle,” first time director Creadon said at the after party at IFC’s Waverly bar. “One day I was working on a project that I found incredibly boring and I kept looking at the New York Times crossword puzzle and I thought figuring out how is done would be a fun story to tell. So I called Will (Shortz) and he said ‘Great idea. Let’s do it.’ He never asked for our resume!”
