As Brie Larson's directorial debut it is a glittery delight and definitely showcases her talent and hopefully future directing.
January 8, 2020
Maybe we should start celebrating how close we came to fulfilling our dreams more often - that might encourage us to not give up and find a way to realise them eventually.

Brie Larson's directorial debut offers a quieter, but potent, kind of girl power.

Unicorn Store has a lot of magic, charm and heart, and although at times it becomes a little too fantastical, the character at its core and the journey she goes through provides an entertaining and investing watch.
July 25, 2019
You can practically see the gears of Larson's earnest intentions straining to churn out an earned resolution for her heroine, but it's tainted by the botched coming-of-age lesson we all have to endure to get there.
July 24, 2019
Unicorn Store has so much going for it -a great cast, solid premise, an exciting director - but the magic falls flat. That's no fault of Brie Larson, whose endearing performance and uneven yet promising direction keep the movie afloat.
June 5, 2019
It may seem that McIntyre's screenplay may be a little heavy handed when signalling the male stereotypes but Larson's performance never makes Kit into somebody unrealistically naïve as she manages to maintain a hopeful outlook on life.

The film presents themes about changing our reality with hard work in a friendly and quirky way. [Full Review in Spanish]
May 21, 2019
Unicorn Store does get points for being unique, but this slow, twee fantasy doesn't have enough interesting ideas to offset its many dull moments.
May 15, 2019
Unicorn Store is about unleashing the weirdness of Larson and Jackson and assuring young people, like they didn't already know, that it's OK to be who you are. Yet ultimately, for a sweet film about dreamers and unicorns, it's curiously black-and-white.
May 6, 2019
This wacky and whimsical modern-day fairy story marks the directorial debut of Oscar-winner Brie Larson. Disenchanted artist Kit moves back in with her parents. One day, she's offered a real unicorn, provided she creates a life and home worthy of one.
May 4, 2019
Won't be for everyone and in a lot of ways that's the point of the film. Conforming to society and other people's opinions isn't all that thrilling anyway.
April 30, 2019
As a director, Larson comprehends the right about of comedy and never lets this story get so ridiculous it can't pull back into the realm of reason.
April 25, 2019
The glitter onscreen dazzles more than the actual film, but Unicorn Store is a solid depiction of the trials of adulthood and finding joy in the places you least expect.
April 23, 2019
More movies like this, please: a piquant mix of whimsy and snark; an insistence that it's not crazy to forge your own oddball path; an embrace of girly uncool. Bring on the weird, difficult women.

Flawed, but it is often a charming dedication to dreamers.
April 15, 2019
[Brie Larson's] film is naive, of course, but at the same time ambitious. [Full review in Spanish]
April 12, 2019
What Unicorn Store teaches us is to vacuum up our insecurities and be our truest selves. And while we may not fit into the box society puts us in as a result, it's okay to see life through sparkly, bubblegum-pink glasses.
April 12, 2019
Taking on a potentially twee and childish premise, [Brie] Larson has created a bold and colourful world for [Samantha] McIntyre's earnest, soulful and relatable tale of personal growth.
April 11, 2019
...the set-up gets a little too whimsical and abstract for its own good.
