Gattaca (1997)

Directed by Andrew Niccol

In a future society in the era of indefinite eugenics, humans are set on a life course depending on their DNA. Young Vincent Freeman is born with a condition that would prevent him from space travel, yet is determined to infiltrate the GATTACA space program.

Not to sound like a Jacobin article, but race, class and where we were born on earth probably account for 90+% of what we will (and can) do in our lives... So what, exactly, is the value in the final 10%…?
