  • Gattaca

    A Futuristic Success or Fail?

    Ethan Hawke, Jude Law, Uma Thurman. Good, now that I have your attention let me tell you about the story of Gattaca.

    Vincent Freeman lives in a futuristic world where he’s one of the few naturally born children without any genetic altering. He’s thought of as inferior and after years of rejection, he buys himself a new life. A life where his DNA is perfect and can get him into the Gattaca space program, his lifetime dream. This new life is made possible by Jerome Morrow, a Perfect who is crippled and wants to continue his life of luxury. The two are a perfect team with a massive secret. A secret that may soon be uncovered when a murder occurs at Gattaca and everyone is under scrutiny.

    Gattaca receives a perfect rating for two main reasons. First it’s a movie that relies heavily on the acting, the sets, and the mysterious storyline and not the big Hollywood action fighting and or/monsters booming around the big screen. And second the plot, from the very beginning you find yourself sucked into this story of character makeup vs. genetic makeup. Where the human spirit is proven over and over to supersede even the most perfectly engineered person. Gattaca is a movie that inspires you to choose to be better and do better, no matter your genetic makeup.

    Motherly Advice: I viewed Gattaca with my filters on medium. As I mentioned above, one of the beauties of this film is that it doesn’t rely on a lot of fighting, so you don’t need to worry about a lot of violence. But there is one point where a man is murdered and though you don’t see the act, you do catch a glimpse of a bloody skull. The only other short violent scene is when Vincent throws a few punches at a cop blocking his way. In the romantic story, Vincent and Irene have one passionate kiss and a bed scene where they’re sleeping, showing both of their bare backs. Vincent and his brother go swimming in 3 scenes that show their bare chests. This film is clean enough for ages 12 and up but the story is intricate and complicated, and beautiful, and definitely for ages 14 and up.
