REVIEW

“Wetware” is set in a near future where people down on their luck apply for genetic modifications to take on hard jobs in slaughterhouses, toxic cleanup and deep sea mining – jobs that nobody wants to do. With business booming, programmers at Galapagos Wetware up the stakes by producing high-end prototypes, Jack and Kay, for more sensitive jobs like space travel, counterterrorism, and deep cover espionage.

Galapagos genetic programmer Hal Briggs is sharp and creative but impetuous. He’s a socially awkward romantic in a transactional world. He keeps a virtual human clock at home and improvises as he goes on what qualities to include or delete in his gene splicing for Jack and, especially, Kay, to whom he develops a dangerous attachment.

Then word gets out that Jack and Kay have escaped from the Galapagos labs, before Briggs has completed his work. Where have they gone and what do they know? Briggs scrambles to track his fugitive prototypes and, as he reexamines Jack and Kay’s codes, he makes a provocative discovery that will change everything.

“Wetware’s” cast includes Jerry O’Connell (“Stand By Me,” “Jerry McGuire”), Cameron Scoggins (“Nashville,” “The Deuce”), Morgan Wolk (“The Affair,” “Miles Ahead”), Nicole Shalhoub (“The Good Wife,” “Madame Secretary”), Bret Lada (“Law and Order”), Aurélia Thiérrée (“Aurelia’s Oratorio,” “Bells and Spells”), Garret Lee Hicks (“The Americans”), Matt Salinger (“Captain America”), and Emmy- winner Gordon Clapp.

Craven’s longtime music collaborators, Judy Hyman and Jeff Claus, from the Ithaca-based Horse Flies, have composed and produced the film score.
