"I'm building a home worthy of a unicorn." Netflix has debuted a trailer for indie comedy Unicorn Store, the feature directorial debut of actress Brie Larson (aka Captain Marvel). This originally premiered back in 2017 at the Toronto Film Festival, before Larson rocked the screen as Captain Marvel, and also stopped by the Edinburgh Film Festival last year. It received dismal reviews and was buried pretty quickly. Netflix is finally giving the film a release this April, if anyone is still curious. Larson's Unicorn Store also stars Brie Larson as a woman named Kit who receives a mysterious invitation that would fulfill her childhood dreams of having a unicorn. Described as a "quirky and offbeat story that's delivered with real charm and affection." The cast includes Samuel L. Jackson, Bradley Whitford, Joan Cusack, Martha MacIsaac, Karan Soni, Ryan Hansen, Annaleigh Ashford, Hamish Linklater, & Mamoudou Athie. Quirky but fun.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Brie Larson's Unicorn Store, direct from YouTube:
Brie Larson plays Kit, a unicorn-obsessed art student who must face reality when her art dreams are dashed. An oddball life lesson comes in the form of flamboyant salesman (Samuel L. Jackson), who claims to be able to help her adopt her own unicorn if she fulfills a series of chores and instructions. Unicorn Store is directed by American actress / filmmaker Brie Larson, making her feature directorial debut with this after a few other short films previously. The screenplay is written by Samantha McIntyre. This initially premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2017, and it also played at the Edinburgh Film Festival last year. Netflix will release Larson's Unicorn Store streaming exclusively starting on April 5th this spring. Curious?
Looks dead. I don't know what happen with Brie but she hasn't been the same since winning her Oscar in Room.

She went the Jennifer Lawrence route and grabbed the golden ring of slick Hollywood, super hero, mass audience appeal junk movies to become a movie star and be rich and famous...and to me...along with Lawrence...of no interest whatsoever. Hard to turn down all the glitter and gold, but you have to sell your soul to the devil which is Hollywood.

Jackson and Larson are certainly becoming "a thing", huh? A good thing, though...their chemistry is fantastic, and this film looks charming. Never thought I would say it, but Larson is winning me over!

I saw this and it's just a weird fucked up movie that makes absolutely no sense and I loved it. Not for everyone.

Looks like fun.

Yeah...I'm not into this. It's a bit too cutesy and jumping on the trend of "YOU BE YOU" story line that's getting to be pretty tired and beaten into the ground.
