Film Review | Unicorn Store (2019)
Brie Larson has such wonderful youth energy and her chemistry with Samuel L. Jackson really squeeze about all they can out of this script. Her character’s parents are also some decent boomer parents. I think the one thing this film does pretty well is capture some of that restless adult energy that Millennials are having trouble quantifying.
We still feel stuck in our youth, but having to take ownership of the boring way the world has been shaped. This really gets at that, and adds in some representation for those that can’t focus and feel an even higher pressure to fit into traditional jobs, etc. Colorful and imaginative, Brie Larson directs with such whimsy, but definitely shows rough edges on her first time out.
