This is a movie that I hardly ever see on anyone's list of inspirational movies. This is my favorite movie and for me is perhaps the most inspirational.
Gattaca is the story of a man in the future that is discriminated against due to his genetic makeup being "flawed". He lives in the time when only the genetically superior are able to reach their potential. He decides that his dreams are too important to him to allow society to suppress his spirit. He does everything he can to overcome his "inferior" birth and attain his dream of going into space.
This movie conveys the truth that everyone has a potential that is amazing. Each person on earth has the ability to change the world. Society perpetuates the lie that mediocrity is the best that it can be for most people.

Gattaca is a very inspirational movie, especially when viewed several times. I remember watching it the first time and taking in the environment, the technology, the struggle, the evolution and devolution. When I watched it again, and again, I was able to focus on all the details... and the message got stronger and clearer. Good movie to watch - time and again.

Thanks for the welcome and your replies.
Another thing I forgot to mention is one of the special features on the DVD. I believe it is in the deleted scenes and is called Coda. It is very simple and shows people who accomplished amazing things in their lives. They had genetic "defects" as it would be seen in the Gattaca world. Had their parents had access to the type of medical help depicted in the movie, they would never have been born. The end of the scene is the most poignant so I won't ruin it for people who wish to go and watch it, which I highly recommend.
