'Unicorn Store' Brings Out The Inner Child Of Everyone

'Unicorn Store' Brings Out The Inner Child Of Everyone

"Everyone needs a little magic, even if they're all grown up." This couldn't be more true about the movie "Unicorn Store." The quote came from the movie poster and was the first thing that caught my attention when I was browsing movies on Netflix.

"Unicorn Store" stars Brie Larson, who directed and co-produced the film, and the screenplay was by Samantha McIntyre. Larson plays Kit, who is a struggling artist with a wild and child-like imagination that is reflected in her work.

The opening scene shows Kit creating one of her chaotic works, which oozes rainbows, glitter, and most importantly unicorns. It definitely sets the whimsical tone for the rest of the movie.

However, Kit, has a hard time getting positive feedback about her work, and decides to quit being an artist and gets a job at a temp agency. While working for her rather odd boss, she keeps receiving anonymous letters inviting her to come to a place called The Store. Finally, she decides to go and meets a man that promises he will give her a unicorn if she proves she can provide for it.

Kit is then tasked with providing a perfect home to her potential unicorn, which is her lifelong dream. I felt that this movie really captured every child's fantasy as she takes the journey to try to show she is the best unicorn owner.

The costumes for Kit truly were child-like and shows her immaturity but her drive to become a responsible worker and unicorn owner. Throughout the movie, she uses her tasks that she needs to complete for the unicorn, and applies them to her real-life job at the temp agency. She even prepares a glitter covered vacuum to present to her boss and team, and although the idea flops, she still continues to try to be a good employee.

What viewers can take away from this mood-lifting movie is that even though you are an adult, you can still enjoy childhood memories and fantasies. It may seem silly, but everyone was once a kid, and what happened during your childhood can greatly affect how you are as an adult.

Kit realizes that she doesn't need a unicorn to be fulfilled in life, but her imagination makes her fulfilled and successful.
