Not satisfied with being an actual superhero as well as an Oscar-winning actress, 29-year-old Brie Larson has taken a stab at directing a new film starring herself and Samuel L. Jackson.
Unicorn Store is a tale about a woman – a struggling actress – seeking to acquire an actual unicorn (bear with us), after receiving an offer from The Salesman (Jackson), owner of The Store, a place filled with hay, ice cream, and other delightfully twee items.
However, the only thing is that “one does not simply” get a unicorn.
You have to earn it by proving worthy of such a rare creature, and that means establishing order in every aspect of your life, whether it’s family, friends, love, or work. That same “unicorn” also serves as a metaphor for all the seemingly unachievable aspects of full and complete personhood.
The film – which seems to be filled with deadpan and relatable characters – has been accruing tonnes of new fans since its addition to Netflix some twelve hours ago.
Weird, funny, sweet and fearless, Unicorn Store is another opportunity to see a fine young actress at work.
And, lucky for us, it's available both on both UK and US Netflix.
