a netflix semi-original film
Kristen Stewart is great in this, and I liked her oufits and the set decoration.

Well folks, it’s that time of year again. I thought a lot about what I wanted this year’s gretagiving theme to be, the first was a series about what each of her films up to that point had taught me about love, patience, and pain.

I felt validated in the moment, but soon found myself…

I waited 598 days to watch this movie. That seems like a long time, but it didn't really feel like it. I remember how excited I was to find out it was premiering at TIFF, and then, nothing. It was withheld from me for the longest time. When I found out that Neflix was releasing it, I was overjoyed.
Unicorn Store is about magic, both the magic that allows notes to end up…
