    Related Texts to BNW

    Hey there guys

    Has anyone here used the film Gattaca as a related text for Brave New World? Either way, could you guys give some useful tips on how they link up a bit?

    Gattaca was a text used for Year 11 students a few years ago, so avoid using it. However if you do end up doing, you can link them on:
    -the notion that utopian societies (BNW: pleasure-fulfilling, Gattaca: genetic perfection) are actually dystopias (loss of human spirit, creativity, and loving human relationships regardless of a person's defects)
    -technological development altering the philosophical/ethical outlook of society
    -the notion of an outcast/ challenger (the protagonists of both texts go against societal norms)
