a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
This short film is based on a short story by Lev Grossman is a repeat-the-same-day romcom that uses 2D projections of a tesseract as a plot point! I liked it even if it’s a little handwavy, and math also comes up as a conversation topic for the nerdy characters, with a subplot of learning algebra while they’re stuck in the loop. As a high-school geek, I really enjoyed the romance sprinkled with numbers, and it was wholesome enough for everyone else to enjoy it too! I’d rate the math content at a 2/5 and quality as 4/5.

So the first thing that you need to know about math is that it's always perfect.
Presumably the short story also has math in it. At this point, I haven't seen the movie or read the story. If you know, please write me.

Exciting News: The 1,600th entry was recently added to this database of mathematical fiction! Also, for those of you interested in non-fictional math books
let me (shamelessly) plug the recent release of the second edition of my soliton theory textbook.
