Uma Thurman in Gattaca (1997)
Gattaca is a 1997 science fiction film by director/screenwriter Andrew Niccol, starring Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman, Jude Law and Alan Arkin.
It combines a Hollywood action/adventure plot with a distinct vision and statement on the future where genetic testing and eugenic genetic engineering has altered mankind to such an extent that children conceived by traditional sexual reproduction are members of an underclass.
Recent developments in genetic diagnosis of inherited diseases and the real-world technologies of in vitro fertilisation and embryo selection have made a society similar to that represented in Gattaca seem feasible in the not-too-distant future. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gattaca [Apr 2005]
