What Is “Tiny Beautiful Things” All About
Who Created The Series?
“Tiny Beautiful Things” is a captivating eight-episode drama mini-series, and probably one of the best mini-series of the year to be honest.
Created by the talented Liz Tigelaar (Little Fires Everywhere), who also produces the series alongside notable names such as Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern (Little Women, Wild), Lauren Neustadter (Something From Tiffany’s, Where The Crawdads Sing), Stacey Silverman, Jayme Lemons, author Cheryl Strayed, and actress Kathryn Hahn.
Plus, the series features a range of talented directors, including LGBTQ+ directors Desiree Akhavan (The Miseducation of Cameron Post, Appropriate Behavior) and Stacie Passon (Tales of the City, Dickinson, Concussion), as well as Rachel Lee Goldenberg (Unpregnant, Minx, Looking For Alaska).
What Is The Plot?
Based on the best-selling collection by Cheryl Strayed, the plot of “Tiny Beautiful Things” follows Clare (Kathryn Hahn), a floundering writer who becomes a revered advice columnist while her own life falls apart.
When we first meet Clare, her marriage to Danny (Quentin Plair) is barely limping along; her teenage daughter, Rae (Tanzyn Crawford), is pushing her away; and her once-promising writing career is non-existent. So when an old friend asks her to take over as advice columnist Dear Sugar, she thinks she has no business giving anyone advice. Upon reluctantly taking on the name Sugar, Clare’s life unravels, revealing a complex tapestry of memories that delve into her most pivotal moments from childhood to the present day. Through this journey, she uncovers the beauty, struggle, and humor within her unhealed wounds. Through Sugar, Clare creates a salve for her readers—and herself—to show us that we are not beyond rescue and that our stories can ultimately save us. And, perhaps, bring us back home.
