I BELIEVE IN UNICORNS takes us on a road trip through the stunning and complex landscape of troubled young love. The film tells the story of Davina, an imaginative and strong-willed teenage girl who often escapes into a beautifully twisted fantasy life. Having grown up quickly as the sole caretaker of her disabled mother, she looks for salvation in a new relationship with an older boy. Davina is swept into a whirlwind of romance and adventure, but the enchantment of her new relationship quickly fades when Sterling’s volatile side begins to emerge.

Her debut feature film, I BELIEVE IN UNICORNS, was an official selection of the Tribeca All Access Labs, IFP Emerging Narrative Labs, IFP Narrative Finishing Labs, Edit Center Program, US in Progress program at the Champ Elysees Film Festival, and the Emerging Visions program at the New York Film Festival, with additional support from NYU, IFP, Tribeca Film Institute and the Adrienne Shelly Foundation.

A sensitively observed and arrestingly impressionistic drama that feels at once deeply personal and easily accessible.

Joe Leydon, Variety

One of the most authentic and down-to-earth coming of age stories I’ve seen in cinema.

Danielle Lurie, Filmmaker Magazine

Tough, textured film about first love anchored by lovely, mature lead performances.

Susanna Locascio, Hammer to Nail
