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 society obsessed with genetic perfection. Vincent (Ethan Hawke), a natural birth or "in-valid," 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 flight, a Gattaca mission director is murdered and an unnoticed eyelash singles out Vincent as a suspect. With a relentless investigator in pursuit and the colleague he has fallen in love with (Uma Thurman) beginning to suspect his deception, Vincent's dreams steadily unravel until he is finally forced to confront his true self.
