In the future, discrimination isn't based on the colour of a man's skin, but his genetic make-up. 'Naturally' born Vincent (Hawke) forms a pact with crippled Jerome (Law) to use his genetic identity in an attempt to become an astronaut. The photography is washed by coloured filters and the retro-future design is as distinctive as Blade Runner. Bold ideas develop at their own pace and, despite the intrusive 'Hollywood' moments, Gattaca emerges as a true individual in an industry of clones.
