The Map of Tiny Perfect Things – Soul Forge Podcast 191

A Map of Tiny Perfect Things

The Map of Tiny Perfect Things is a 2021 American science fiction romantic comedy-drama film directed by Ian Samuels, from a screenplay by Lev Grossman, based upon his short story of the same name. It stars Kathryn Newton and Kyle Allen.

Mark, a teenage boy, is stuck in a time loop, repeating the same day over and over again. Because of his knowledge of what will happen, and the freedom from consequences provided by the time loop, he spends much of his day engaging in random bizarre activities, such as driving construction machinery through town. At the community pool, he makes repeated attempts to impress a pretty girl by trying to save her from being knocked into the water by a thrown beach ball. One day, a girl named Margaret unexpectedly intervenes. Mark tracks her down and discovers that she is also living in the same time loop. 

The Map of Tiny Perfect Things is not only the name of the film, and the name of this episode, but also a great way of looking at the world. Each and every one of us lives inside a map based on our feelings and experiences. This movie is definitely worth a viewing. It will make you think in new and unique ways. While not a perfect film, it certainly has something to say about life and living. This is the first movie review episode of the Soul Forge Podcast. If you like this style of episode, perhaps we will do more of them in the future.
