Film Discussion: Gattaca (1997) [not a CFI event]

Description

Join the Film&Forum group for viewing and discussing GATTACA.

Please come early to get something to eat and drink. Showing begins at about 6 pm. We may start a few minutes late - depending on football game.

In the not-too-distant future, a less-than-perfect man wants to travel to the stars. Society has categorized Vincent Freeman as less than suitable given his genetic make-up and he has become one of the underclass of humans that are only useful for menial jobs. To move ahead, he assumes the identity of Jerome Morrow, a perfect genetic specimen who is a paraplegic as a result of a car accident. With professional advice, Vincent learns to deceive DNA and urine sample testing. Just when he is finally scheduled for a space mission, his program director is killed and the police begin an investigation, jeopardizing his secret.
