About this movie

Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman, Alan Arkin and Jude Law star in this engrossing sci-fi thriller about an all-too-human man who dares to defy a system obsessed with genetic perfection. Hawke stars as Vincent, an "In-Valid" who assumes the identity of a member of the genetic elite to pursue his goal of traveling into space with the Gattaca Aerospace Corporation. However, a week before his mission, a murder marks Vincent as a suspect. With a relentless investigator in pursuit and the colleague he has fallen in love with beginning to suspect his deception, Vincent's dreams steadily unravel.

Skillfully weaves two stories together, a murder mystery, and the quest of someone with natural genetics to pursue a life where the opportunities are only open to those with genetic enhancements - exploring the issues without getting bogged down. Both intelligent and moving. Excellent.

From my point of view, we're going to be in this situation quite soon. But the way in which is presented is majestic. One of my all time favourites.
