Brie Larson and Samuel L. are teaming up again in their latest film. But instead of battling a giant gorilla or aliens from space the two of them will battle what it means to love yourself despite what others say or think about you. The film is called Unicorn Store and Larson directed the film herself. This film will be coming out on Netflix this upcoming April 5th. This film follows the story of a woman named Kit who originally wanted to be an artist but had to give up her dreams after failing to impress people at an art gallery.
She goes from being a spunky artist with a magical style of her own to a bland average looking office worker. While working with a Public Relations firm she battles wanting to follow her dreams of being an artist vs pleasing her parents and everyone else that wants her to “grow up” and not be who she is. One night she runs into a store run by an owner (Jackson) who says his store can sell what a person has most wanted in their life. The thing Kit has mainly wanted is a real-life unicorn, however, to get it she has to prove that she can be a good owner to it by proving she can fully love herself. This film has a great message to everyone out there who feels they can’t be themselves and can’t follow their dreams just because it goes against people’s norms.
