The Last Unicorn is a haunting fantasy tale that both children and adults should find appealing. It can be scary, sweet, heartwarming, and even satirical at times, as it follows a unicorn on a journey to find her lost brethren, who were supposedly driven out of existence by a red bull controlled by a mad king. The voice cast brings life to the movie’s distinct animated style (created by a studio whose core members went on to form Studio Ghibli), and the score is wonderfully composed by the legend Jimmy Webb, with memorable songs performed by the folk band America. It’s a strange and beautiful story of love, loss, and magic that has a truly unique sensibility. — Allison Keene
