good sci-fi film with a thought-provoking premise. often, for me, the sci-fi film is about the premise more than anything else. what fundamental difference in the future are they highlighting and what does that say about our society today? what does it say about humanity in general? here the idea is that nurture can be as important as nature. it also shows the fundamental humanity that cuts through societal norms (love triumphs, personal achievement is still important (hawke’s boss), communal is still present, etc.) good film.
