'The Map of Tiny Perfect Things' Full Cast List: Meet Kathryn Newton, Kyle Allen and rest of the stars of Amazon Prime's sci-fi series
The film is a love story with a fantastical twist, as the two struggle to figure out how, and whether, they can escape their never-ending day
The Amazon Prime sci-fi rom-com dramedy titled 'The Map of Tiny Perfect Things' is set to make its debut this month. The trailer gives us the vibe of 'Edge of Tomorrow' and 'The Fault in Our Stars' mixed together as it follows two people who seem to be living one day in an "endless loop." Turns out while it's fun at first to have unlimited time, it really isn't what living is supposed to be like. After the duo meets, not only do they understand what the other is going through, they also seem to have a difference of opinion on how to move forward for the one day they keep living.
It's safe to say that if you like storylines about "time anomalies", then you might be in for a good movie night with this release. The film is written based on a short story written by Lev Grossman and is being directed by Ian Samuels. Here is the cast bringing this fantasy love story to life.
