A made for TV film that boasts wonderful acting and a script that both visualizes and honors the thought provoking work (of great depth), which provides the title.

Leaving the plot description for others - a thought:
It is evident that the team responsible for this film treated the content very seriously, this is a work of love.

This film had somehow found itself buried under years of lesser films, and seen by too few - but it is a gem.

A recommended choice for viewing - and a buy if ever it appears on DVD.

Format: VHS Tape
Update classics as Shakespeare and you distort the feel along with the message. It was written for a period and the more you deviate the more you lose the point let alone the ambiance. Update "Brave New World" and you threaten to do the same. However the use of today's technology and making the primitives just unruly people (shades of Logan's Run) did not actually distract that much and may even have been the original intention.
The movie uses well know actors that fit the characters (Peter Gallagher as Bernard Marx and Leonard Nimoy as Mustapha Mond). The scenery is and sci-fi technology is well done and believable.

With all of this there is a great letdown when the story line is not followed and the sting and impact is missing from the book as the story was changed into just a contemporary social commentary. The book by Aldous Huxley is based on the day's example of genetic engineering or a least a little alcohol to create people that were happy in their station. The character John hangs him self in exasperation. In this teleplay rewritten by Dan Mazur and David Tausik the Brave new World is just a society of sex-crazed drudges and John just trips and accidentally falls to his death. There are several other watered down differences.

Purists are bound to hate this and ask why the effort. Others may find this teleplay interesting enough as entertainment.

Book purists will hate it, but as I read the old book, it constantly reminded me of how we are living in the brave new world environment today. So, this update matching the old novel to typical modern perspectives was really cool to me. It did a fine job of displaying the messages and making the new morality seem more normal, just like the novel. There's main things missing like not everyone in each class is an identical looking clone - but that part is probably what keeps this book from ever getting made into a real movie anyway. Forgivable and isn't needed in this take. If you can open your mind and allow some leeway, you can find this to be an excellent, albiet updated version of the original story.

The BLU RAY Looks fine, although not epic HD or anything, it does look cleaner than I was expecting for a Made For TV movie, and is probably equal or slightly better than the DVD version. The original material might have even been in STANDARD DEFINITION, I don't know for sure. But, it is the best version of this lost flick we will probably ever see. The audio seemed fine - it was enjoyable and nothing jumped out as really messed up... I forgot about judging the audio and just enjoyed the movie - which I see as a good thing.
I gave it five stars because I am happy they finally decided to burn copies for us, and it looked better than I was expecting.... but, my expectations were pretty low for a low budget, TV movie. Happy with the purchase!

I bought the film because I taught BNW in class and I expected something philosophical and closely related to the book. Actually, the film is nothing like the book (it uses elements, but alters important character traits, plotlines and themes). At first, I was very disappointed. However, the film can give you a fresh insight into values such as promiscuity, jealousy, consumerism and shallowness - apart from the novel. It is quite modern in its setting and some of the actors do a good job. It's you who decides. :)

I love the book. I teach the book. I love the movie. I teach the movie. Check out Roger Paden's "Ideology and Anti-Utopia" for further clarification. When the movie is different from the book for intelligent reasons, this is success. My only problem with this film is that is incorrectly cites Shakespeare's words, but I point this out to students and allow them to join in with the few of us who know the difference.

I have to agree with some of the other reviewers that this departed way too far from the original novel. I was really hoping that the "updated" version would have more special effects and would have seemed to be more futuristic. I was also hoping to see more visual effects creating the babies. The delinquent trailer park "savages" didn't fit into the story as did the original spiritual "savages" of the novel. That just seemed very odd to me. There were a few good features to this movie, but all in all, quite a disappointment. Not very true to the storyline.

Also, Leonard Nimoy also was too old to play the part of one the futuristic people who don't age. He looked the same age as Linda who only aged because she was away from the "treatments" that keep all the civilized people young.

The ending was very strange. All of a sudden, Lenina gets pregnant when their way of life virtually prevents that from happening, and this couple changes their way of thinking about what to do, after a lifetime of conditioning??? The only interesting thing was the boy at the end who avoided conditioning by seemingly being able to think for himself.
