Fifth about The Seventh

The Map of Tiny Perfect Things

The Map of Tiny Perfect Things: turning a very well-known concept (the two more famous examples are explicitly mentioned multiple times) a little bit on its ear, Ian Samuels’ film is a charming entry in the time-loop annals. Thematically, the film follows the beaten path, but there is, as in the story itself, enough novelty to make it engaging. The couple is cute enough: he (played by Kyle Allen) is smart and caring, but too much of a blank slate; she (portrayed by Kathryn Newton, who leaves a better impression due to a more interesting character) is more complex, smarter and carrying some secret hurt with her. The film captures its small-town location with a golden, dreamy look; cinematographer Andrew Wehde pulls off a couple of nicely choreographed long takes.
