Rated PG-13

Gattaca is a sci-fi drama released in 1997, directed by Andrew Niccol. The story follows Vincent Freeman (Ethan Hawke), an 'in-valid' who dreams of one day traveling to space. In a world where genetic engineering has become the norm, and those with the best genetics are considered 'valid', Vincent is seen as a lower class citizen. In order to achieve his dreams, Vincent assumes the identity of Jerome Morrow (Jude Law), a 'valid' with perfect genetics. Vincent must now mask his 'in-valid' identity and use extreme caution to prevent being exposed as an 'in-valid'. Complicating matters further, a murder investigation at the Gattaca Corporation where Vincent works reveals that his true identity may have been discovered. With the help of his brother and the recently-released Irene (Uma Thurman), Vincent is able to achieve his dream of going into space. In the end, Vincent is able to go to space and experience the joy of free-falling in zero gravity.
