Unicorn Store | Official Trailer | Netflix.
Kit (Brie Larson), a failed artist, moves back in with her parents and takes a temp job at a PR agency. At work, Kit meets the vice president of the company, Gary (Hamish Linklater), who is extremely awkward and makes inappropriate advances towards her.
Shortly after starting the job, Kit receives a mysterious letter from "The Salesman" who invites her to "The Store," the place that sells "what you need." The Salesman (Samuel L. Jackson) offers Kit the chance to fulfill her childhood fantasy of owning a unicorn. Kit must prepare for ownership of a unicorn by meeting specific requirements detailed in files given to her by the Salesman. The first file outlines how to provide an adequate enclosure for the unicorn to live in. Kit hires Virgil (Mamoudou Athie), a hardware store employee, to build a stable but does not tell him what she needs it for. Soon, they begin to talk and spend time together. The second file tells Kit she must prepare to feed the unicorn. Kit and Virgil buy hay on a day trip together and get to know each other better.
Gary offers Kit an opportunity to present a marketing pitch for a vacuum cleaner. During this time, Kit receives the next file and learns she must be able to surround the unicorn with a loving environment, but recognizes that her dysfunctional relationship with her parents keeps her from doing so. On the weekend Kit should be preparing her presentation for work, she goes on an "Emotion Quest" wilderness trip with her parents and confronts them during the 'truth circle' time, leading to a family discussion. The discussion turns into an argument, furthering tensions between her and her parents.
