Synopsis:
Vincent (Ethan Hawke) is an outsider, a natural birth or Invalid, living in a world in which designer people- forged in test tubes- rule society. Determined to break out of his imperfect genetic destiny and fulfil his dreams, Vincent meets Jerome (Jude Law), a Valid willing to sell his prime genetic material for cash. Using Jerome's blood, urine, skin and hair samples, Vincent is able to forge a new identity and pursue his goal of a mission to space with the Gattaca Aerospace Corporation, and enjoy a blossoming romance with Irene (Uma Thurman), another Valid.
However a week before his flight, a Gattaca mission director is brutally murdered and Vincent finds himself pursued by a relentless investigator (Alan Arkin) threatening to expose his counterfeit life and reveal him as "In-valid", ending his dreams forever.

Good sci-fi - Gattaca review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
12/02/2007

I seem to remember this getting slated by the critics when it came out, so I didn't watch it. However, it seems to have stood the test of time, unlike some sci-fi films. The story of genetically engineered human beings ruling the world is not a new one, but it is done well. I actually found myself comparing this vision of future society with Nazi Germany, as there were similarities in the way people who were believed to be 'lesser' mortals (or 'In-valids') were treated by the 'Valids'. It also has an appealing message of 'you can do anything you set out to achieve if you put your mind to it'. Thought Jude Law and Ethan Hawke were particularly good.
