The movie “Bright” was released on Netflix on Dec. 22, 2017. It’s a dystopian movie about an alternate present where humans, fairies and other fictional creatures coexist.
Two police officers, human (Will Smith) and orc (creature known for bad intuition), are on night patrol and end up having to protect a female elf from evil while also having to battle their own differences. Nick Jakoby doesn’t want that lifestyle so he became a cop.
Jakoby is my favorite character because of his passion for his job and his determination to show the world that everyone can change and be different from the expected nature.
This movie’s overlying theme is racism and discrimination and it leaves a meaningful impact on viewers. I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys science fiction.
