Found this by looking at a page of suggestions on Netflix. Some parts are like Logans Run; Utopian society that manages genetics, tells you what job you will do, suppresses all feelings so everyone can get along. Very little action, and a well told story.

Maybe someone knows the name of a scifi movie I saw some years back. I only remember a few details which may provide a clue as to what it is.
To prepare for a long space flight, a functional/ mock space ship was built in an underground test lab. The ship was sealed with the occupants inside and then the launch and trip were simulated for those inside. A way into the 'trip' something goes wrong outside the simulation and eventually the occupants leave their ship and enter the real world. Some of those details may be wrong, it's been a long time since I saw it.

Any clues as to the name of the movie would be appreciated.
Thank you! I don't even remember if the movie was good or not, guessing it wasn't too bad or I wouldn't have remembered it.
