This is both a fun and sad film. There are moments when it is just magical, as a film that has unicorn in its title. It is playful and that burdensome.
The story is about a young girl with a big imagination who is stuck in a tight place, taking care of her disabled mom. The film, and the main character's mind, go between these magical scenes. The concept is also a classic on-the-road movie with some new textures and concepts.
