“The Map of Tiny Perfect Things” Review

Are you looking for a movie to watch? Are you into sci-fi, feel-good, quirky, or comedy movies? Then I have a great movie to recommend! The movie is called “The Map of Tiny Perfect Things.” The basic gist of it is that there is this guy named Mark (Kyle Allen) who has been trapped in the same day over and over again for a long time. Until one day something changes. He meets Margaret (Kathryn Newton) who has also been trapped in the same day over and over again. Together they do fun things and explore a bit while trying to find a way out of the loop. Eventually, you learn more about each of them. They bring up great questions and insights into what every day means. There is also a good amount of comedy in it that just makes you laugh and feel good. 

This movie came out in 2021 and is an Amazon original movie. I like this movie a lot because the title is amazing, and it just has such a refreshing storyline that gives you such a cool perspective of the world. It’s not really a thrilling, action-packed movie like I normally would watch, but I still really enjoyed it. I loved it because, in a way, it is really simple and easy. It just flows so smoothly, that it doesn’t even feel like you’re reaching the end until you just kind of get there. I really liked the ending, and although I wasn’t sure exactly what was going to happen, I was still kind of expecting it. They gave all these little hints in the movie that I didn’t even realize were hints until the end. This made it fun to rewatch and to realize all the foreshadowing that was happening. 

 I like how it tells the story of an ordinary person who is dealing with the ordinary troubles of life. Except, he is dealing with the same things every single day. This movie shows that what you do every day can make an impact, and that you should take the chance to seize every day. But it also shows how not to get caught up in a day. Sometimes you just have to move on and go to the next day. There are not a lot of characters, so you really get to focus on the main two and watch them grow throughout the movie. It’s also just cool to watch the two characters try to get out of the loop and debate whether they want to. 

I really liked this movie, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for something to watch. There are some movies that just have this feeling about them. Once you’re done watching, you feel like you learned something new, and your perspective’s been changed. I thought this movie had some great messages in it. There was nothing in the movie that I really disliked, and I really liked the storyline. Like I mentioned earlier, I liked the cast, and their acting made it so much fun to watch. There is a decent amount of humor and comedy mixed in that keeps you laughing, but it is kind of more subtle and might not be as funny to everyone. I thought it was a nice, sweet, and heartwarming movie. I don’t want to give away too much about it, so if this sounds interesting, then give it a try!
