Letitia Wright to star in Le Brio remake of the 2017 French comedy drama "Le Brio." The original film follows the story of a young French-Arab woman named Neïla Salah, portrayed by singer-actress Camelia Jordana, who came from an underprivileged neighborhood. Due to her dream of becoming a lawyer, she enrolls herself in university. In her first day, she experiences a racism-tainted public humiliation done by her prejudiced professor. Because of the incident, the school’s president forces Mazard to be Salah’s coach for an annual speech contest in order to make amends with what he did.
The remake won’t focus on the speech contest but it is expected to explore the complicated relationship between a student and a professor who come from different ethnic and social backgrounds.
