In a report, describing the premise of the film, Deadline stated, “if 1% of the world’s children were born with powerful gifts, how would society adapt to them? The Brilliance novel trilogy is set in a future where non-neurotypical people — demonized by society as “twists” or “abnorms” — are threatening the status quo of the “normal” population with their unique gifts.”
Recently, Sharmeen made a splash with Ms Marvel as she helped introduced the world’s first Pakistani-origin superhero, moreover, cast Pakistanis and even featured the partition in the series. The two-time Oscar-winning filmmaker is now all set to make her directorial debut with Brilliance.
