Conceiving Ada (1997) Emmy Coer, a computer genius, devises a method of communicating with the past by tapping into undying information waves. She manages to reach the world of Ada Lovelace, founder of the idea of a computer language and proponent of the possibilities of the "difference engine." Ada's ideas were stifled and unfulfilled because of the reality of life as a woman in the nineteenth century. Emmy has a plan to defeat death and the past using her own DNA as a communicative agent to the past, bringing Ada to the present. But what are the possible ramifications?

Movie Quote(s):
  • Doctor: The uterus is completely destroyed. All that mathematics was too much for your body.
  • Ada Augusta Byron King, Countess of Lovelace: [her last words] Death makes the fragility of life delicious. In general, I'm not opposed to it.
  • Ada Augusta Byron King, Countess of Lovelace: I'm not at all certain that half a life is better than no life at all.
Movie Trivia:
  • A director's statement in the film's production notes says that the film was "structured around the idea of a double helix". "Every scene," the notes say, "was structured and shot using a DNA image as a model for actors' placement and camera movement."
