Instead of race, gender, sexuality, or other factors, society is segregated by the disabled and the able-bodied. The able-bodied are those who are born through the process of selection, while the disabled are those who are naturally born to ensure the perpetuation of only the most desirable traits, and are therefore forced into menial jobs and subjected to constant ridicule. In the film, Hawke played Vincent Freeman, a disabled man who uses elaborate methods to hide his status and find a job at the Gattaca Aerospace Corporation. through the derogatory Vincent and the man he pretends to be, Jerome Eugene Morrow (Jude Law), we see how society tries to put disabled people down and pressures able-bodied people to be perfect. The film was even nominated for an Oscar for art direction.
