Wikipedia: Brie
Brie (/briː/; French: [bʁi]) is a soft cow’s-milk cheese named after Brie, the French region from which it originated (roughly corresponding to the modern département of Seine-et-Marne). It is pale in color with a slight grayish tinge under a rind of white mould.

Hi Alistair,
America is a pretty big place and just like in UK, things are quite regional. Given that, depending on where your friend traveled he/she may or may not have been exposed to what is available. Cheese consumption (except in certain regions) is not what it is in your country. However, there are many respectable cheese produced here. In addition to those others have mentioned is a delightful cheese called Teleme. It is produced primarily in the Napa/Sonoma Valley area of California. The cheese is referred to as ‘poor man’s brie’. Other than it’s soft texture, it bares no resemblance to brie flavor.

Thesis: cream cheese can be swapped in for Brie any time as a poor man’s substitute. Still delicious.
