Both the 1932 novel Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and the 1997 science fiction movie "Gattaca" are classified as dystopias because they depict societies riddled with misery, tragedy, and a dehumanizing culture.

In "Gattaca," human beings are "enhanced" through genetic alterations, and those who do not have their DNA modified are seen as second-class citizens.
