'BRAVE NEW WORLD' CASTS
HARRY LLOYD AS MALE LEAD!
|Harry Lloyd will take the male lead in the new series|
As citizens of New London, Bernard Marx (Harry Lloyd) and Lenina Crowne have only ever known a rigid social order, a perfect pharmaceutical called Soma, and a culture of instant gratification and ubiquitous sex. Curious to explore life beyond the strictures of their society, the two New Worlders embark on a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they become embroiled in a harrowing and violent rebellion. Bernard and Lenina are rescued by John the Savage (Alden Ehrenreich), who escapes with them back to New London. The arrival of John, a subversive outsider, in the New World, threatens to disrupt the stability of New London’s utopian society. Harry Lloyd's Bernard Marx is an Alpha Plus who works as a counsellor for The Bureau of Stability, administering Soma to the citizens of New London.
I’m looking forward to this, but will need to carve out some time to read the book first. I can’t believe I put off reading it so long.ReplyDelete
Maybe it is better for us to just watch the show, that way we will be less disappointed if it is not by the book :) And I certainly do need me some Lloyd time in my life!Delete
I'm sure it won't be by the book because they hardly ever do stick by it. But I get so much more enjoyment out of reading than watching. If only I had enough hours in the day to read to my heart's desire, I'd be one very happy girl.Delete
Tell me about it, beside the books that I work on I hardly get any time for private reading :(Delete
No wonder why you grit your teeth over Cassandra. If that's all the reading I was able to do, I'd probably never want to pick up another book again.Delete
yes, my job is one of those that require extreme superpowers of selfcontrol! Imagine having to read a book you hate for two month, ten by ten pages a day, all day long, without skipping or jumping through it. Sometimes a book I hate takes a quarter of my year. And as a professor you are constantly aware of the disgusting mistakes they make and of their flawed writing and yet you have to plough through it line by line, letter by freaking letter.Delete
Sounds horrible, but that's why you're the best of the best at what you do. You've got patience that most of us are sorely lacking for that kind of work.Delete
Yes, I think my miserable childhood gave me rock hard patience :)Delete
I know I read the book eons ago but I would rather watch it unrefreshed!ReplyDelete
Should be fun bringing back memories!Delete
