A Twitter account run by Netflix, @NetflixFilm, recently shared a trailer for Unicorn Store, a film starring Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Joan Cusack and Hamish Linklater.
Larson has been making headlines of late due to her role as superhero ‘Captain Marvel’. This time, she showcases her directorial skills in an upcoming movie that the account described as, “an absolutely charming, heartfelt, exploration of the things that drive us and the creativity that adulthood often tries to extinguish.”
Naysayers weren’t keen on the movie’s debut, however, and took to Twitter to voice their opinions on it.
“This looks like bleh,” commented a Twitter user, whose posts have since been protected. “Take notes from Jonah Hill, who was mentored by Martin Scorsese, who took years before he made his directorial debut out of respect for the artistry of film and the position of the director. This seems like she’s just riding Captain Marvel’s wave.”
The Netflix Twitter account stepped in and defended Larson, counting her considerable list of achievements in one tweet. “Brie Larson has: 58 acting credits, 53 award noms, two writing credits, two short film directing credits, one composing credit, one producing credit, one Oscar,one1 feature directing credit. Been working since 1998,” the clapback read.
Aside from acting, Larson has used her platform to speak on equal opportunities for women and people of color.
