    Watching Unicorn Store, I was most reminded of Adult Life Skills (with Jodie Whitaker), as both are arrested development coming of age stories starring disconnected, artistic women at odds with their families. Brie Larson's directorial debut is less depressing and more fantastical however. Definitely the kind of comedy that speaks to me, I was giggling through most of it, especially on account of the creepy boss (Hamish Linklater) and the granola parents (Bradley Whitford and Joan Cusack). Larson seems to have imparted her own subtlety of acting to her cast, who all do a lot with small expressions even when they are playing goofy caricatures (Sam Jackson, even as a glittering unicorn salesman, is still unusually restrained). Larson's character is immediately lovable as an artist whose girly aesthetic interests no one, and we're more than happy to go on a journey that breaks her down and builds her back up. We're used to this structure - it's often been done with boys and more standard "adventure" - but the specific details and characters manage to refresh the formula enough to amuse and, in the end, touch the invested audience's heart. 7 months 1 week ago
