Confidently conceived and brilliantly executed, Gattaca had a somewhat low profile release in 1997, but audiences and critics hailed the film's originality. It's since been recognised as one of the most intelligent science fiction films of the 1990s. Writer-director Andrew Niccol, the talented New Zealander who also wrote the acclaimed Jim Carrey vehicle The Truman Show, depicts a near-future society in which one's personal and professional destiny is determined by one's genes. In this society, "Valids" (genetically engineered) qualify for positions at prestigious corporations, such as Gattaca, which grooms its most qualified employees for space exploration. "In-Valids" (naturally born), such as the film's protagonist, Vincent (Ethan Hawke), are deemed genetically flawed and subsequently fated to low-level occupations in a genetically caste society. With the help of a disabled "Valid" (Jude Law), Vincent subverts his society's social and biological barriers to pursue his dream of space travel; any random mistake--and an ongoing murder investigation at Gattaca--could reveal his plot. Part thriller, part futuristic drama and cautionary tale, Gattaca establishes its social structure so convincingly that the entire scenario is chillingly believable. With Uma Thurman as the woman who loves Vincent and identifies with his struggle, Gattaca is both stylish and smart, while Jude Law's performance lends the film a note of tragic and heartfelt humanity.

#2

#3
Fantastic film
#4
What a hidden gem of a film. This film is worth so much more... nice to see a science fiction film that doesn't rely on CGI (Star Wars 1-3) but a smart and interesting story/world. Perhaps quite '1984' inspired. FLAMING HOT
#5

Totally agree. So many of todays so-called great films rely on cgi, and usually to their detrement.Great film, and utter bargain.

Well worth a pound of anyones money

Crap film: very tedious
#12
An incredible, thought-provoking look at a scarily probable future...
It's great that you can get it for a quid but a little sad too as the film's poor turnover says a lot about the mindset of the common movie watcher
Buy it and leave your mind switched on for a movie for a change!
#13

You, sir, are in the minority. It is a superb film, quite inventive with an interesting art-deco in the future style and gives us a small window into a way in which genetics may develop over time.
