Brie Larson is taking a brief break from her Captain Marvel duties to make her global directorial debut. Per a recent press release from Netflix, Unicorn Store tells the story of a 20-something dreamer named Kit who moves back in with her parents after failing out of art school. After landing a temp job in a drab office, Kit receives a peculiar invitation to “The Store” from a snazzily dressed salesman played by Samuel L. Jackson. He offers to sell her a unicorn, but first she must prove herself as a worthy recipient of such a creature. Netflix released the trailer for the quirky comedy today.
Unicorn Store premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2017 and is finally seeing a wide release this April. The film also stars Joan Cusack and Bradley Whitford, and the script was penned by Samantha McIntyre, who was the executive story editor for FX’s Married.
You can make your own trip down to the Unicorn Store when it premieres on Netflix April 5.
