In the sci-fi thriller Gattaca, Ethan Hawke struggles to compete in life and work as a biologically inferior human born without the aid of genetic selection. In Gattaca's vision of the future, selectively breeding desirable traits into humans is common. And while genetic discrimination is technically illegal, genetic profiling is still used for things like identifying the most qualified job applicants, resulting in a two-tiered society of genetic haves and have-nots.
