The Brave new world movie is an example of the dystopian fiction which is a story in which the society’s efforts to establish a perfect world goes in vain. The society in question in this novel is set in London in a futuristic concept where the state government has tried to make attempts to create a completely stable civilization one where the society is always happy. Exile experience in the brave new world is universal and several characters experience some form and shape of it throughout the chapters of the novel. These forms of exile are presented in form of alienation and otherness or rather the fact of being unique from others. In this book, Aldous uses the theme of exile as a way of expressing his views and fantasies about the life in the brave new world. This theme has been experienced by various characters in the book either directly such in the case of Helmholtz, Bernard, and Linda or indirectly such as for John and Mustapha Mond. In Brave New World, Aldous Huxley uses the theme of exile by depicting diversions from society. The exile that different characters experience appears to be caused by the brave new world, contradicting this utopian society. Exile is forced upon them because of their unhappiness. According to chapter six, the threat of Benard being exiled is a very devastating and it makes him reconsider if he truly wants to be isolated from the rest of the people. In chapter four, Benard is short, thin, antisocial and at times ill-tempered and as a result of his physical character, he is rejected by most of the women when he asks them out. This fact makes him more agitated and irritated. Benard’s anxiety contributes greatly towards his separation from the other Alphas. This anxiety makes it hard for him to engage with others according to their social behavioral standards (Huxley 2006). He is unique from them in the sense that he is not carefree and fails to have a healthy sex life and fails to interact in an easier and unselfconscious way. This, therefore, alienates him from others and adds to his feeling of isolation. His isolation is therefore attributed to his physical inferiority. This negatively affects his reputation as they are regarded as unusual. He is ashamed of himself and his physical inferiority makes him act as an outsider which makes him feel more miserable. This result to him regarding himself as an individual due to his loneliness brought about by his isolation (Huxley 2006). The theme of exile is also portrayed in the novel of the brave new world by Linda, who is the mother of John.
