Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman, Alan Arkin and Jude Law star in this all time classic sci-fi thriller about an all-too-human man who dares to defy a system and society obsessed with genetic perfection.

Vincent Freeman (Ethan Hawke) has always fantasized about traveling into outer space, but is grounded by his status as a genetically inferior "in-valid." He decides to fight his fate by purchasing the genes of Jerome Morrow (Jude Law), a laboratory-engineered "valid." He assumes Jerome's DNA identity and joins the Gattaca space program, where he falls in love with Irene (Uma Thurman). An investigation into the death of a Gattaca officer complicates Vincent's plans.
