Though the premise is loveably bold, and seemingly fun, Unicorn Store proves to be more awkward and poorly written than it would seem. Brie Larson is at most okay, in this even mess of a film, but its not nearly her acting that is concerning about this picture, but rather her stance as the director. The film seems tonally and emotionally off at times, and though you may want to blame it on the fact that it claims it is being weird, there is a big difference between being so and being random instead. It's not that being weird is necessarily a problem of the film either, but rather it doesn't seem to know how to do so. The film goes all over the place, not knowing what it wants to be, or what it wants to say most of the time. Samuel L. Jackson is by far the best part of this seemingly tv-made film, and makes the best of his poorly written lines/dialogue. In the end, Unicorn Store does make you believe in the magic it was trying to create. Only if it had a better way of getting to the message it was trying to convey, it just may prove to be a decent time. But instead, like the glitter it often uses, it just feels messy. My Rating: 4.75/10
I started watching this thinking it was more of a funny, bull crap fantasy concept, but found myself moved to tears by the end of it. Maybe it's just because I'm different, just like Kit, and I don't wanna grow up. Society feels like the depressing, gray and beige setting of her office - rigid and colourless. Individuals that stand out are pushed away instead of embraced. This movie might not be for everyone, and not everyone might get it, but for those of us feeling like we can't fit into the norm it really hits home. Brie Larson does an amazing job at both acting and directing, and Jackson is simply outstanding as the colourful salesman.
This is a very peculiar little film, and not in a good way. I honestly have no idea what it was trying to say, or whether it was trying to be satirical or sincere. Either way, it failed. The character they created was too incompetent and childish for anyone to be sincerely rooting for her bizarre agenda, yet was too sympathetic and harmless to be made an object of scornful ridicule. It's almost as if a 10-year-old girl, with an age-appropriate obsession for glitter and unicorns, wrote the script, not realizing that an adult woman behaving that way would be considered insane, or how exquisitely bad the character's taste is.
Unicorn Store is delightful, quirky and charming film sparkles with feminine energy and pastel colors (I love the hues in this movie). It perfectly captures the "millenial life crisis" that's why it is also relatable. But... as wonderful as the story is, it needs a little more sophistication and depth, and less straightforwardness. Interesting idea from the trailer, but it stops there. It tries to come off as deeply profound yet in the end there's no follow through. Props to all the actors involved though! They did a great job- really amazing acting performances from everyone. As for Brie Larson's directional debut, this film is a valid effort, but it's obvious the lack of filmmaking maturity. She can do better next time (and I'll surely wait for that movie). Summary? Still a good watch. One of those movie you can play on TV while doing something else... like washing the dishes, or scrolling through your Twitter.
So: -Weird, but at 27, Brie Larson doesn't look even close to the 22/3 y/o character she was portraying -When the dialogue is good, she delivers, when its bad, she fails. So, ok performance, but she's not making it better than what it is. -The message? As a manchild myself (not to the obvious exageration of the movie) I was ready to empathize with the character and story, but I think they didn't deliver a clear message (I believe it kinds of contradict itself a bit). -We got a "real story" and a "fantasy world". We got real life and her mind. I was expecting a convergence for the finale, and yet they kind of dropped the ball. You can't have the cake and eat it. ----- She matures... by totally giving into her childlike mentallity, which was what got her into the problematic state in the first place, right? I don't know. I dont' think it makes sense, and I don't think anyone cared. They do pay more attention to show a colorful world which I had little to no interest on watching. In the end, I didn't hate the movie, it had some (handful) of funny scenes and some (handful) cute scenes, plus terrible attempts at humor, odd acting choices at times by Brie Larson and a tonal dissonance that is not fixed with an ending that makes sense of it.
