The Imitation Game
director:
Morten Tyldum
cast:
Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode

Based on the real life story of legendary British cryptanalyst Alan Turing, the film portrays the nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team of scholars, linguists, chess champions, and intelligence officers to crack the so-called unbreakable codes of Germany’s WWII Enigma machine. The intense and haunting portrayal of the brilliant, complicated Turing spans the key periods of his life: his unhappy teenage years at boarding school; the triumph of his secret wartime work on the revolutionary electro-mechanical bombe that was capable of breaking 3,000 Enigma-generated naval codes a day; and the tragedy of his post-war decline following his conviction for gross indecency, a now-outdated criminal offence stemming from his admission of maintaining a homosexual relationship. “Critics won’t need a Turing machine to pick one of the most smartly judged, truly feeling movies of the year or its most towering, magnetic performance.” (Time)
