WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
Mark (Allen) is a teenager who is contently reliving the same day over and over again due to a time loop. His world is turned upside down when he discovers that Margaret (Newton), a fellow teen, is also stuck in the loop, leading the two to try and figure how – if at all – they should escape it for good…
IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Hot off the heels of last year’s breakout hit Palm Springs (which, incidentally, is yet to receive a firm UK release on the same platform as this), The Map of Tiny Perfect Things is a sci-fi teen comedy that takes the basic premise of Groundhog Day and builds a fun, charming coming-of-age story out of it.
