The Imitation Game

During the winter of 1952, British mathematician and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) is arrested and convicted by authorities for the then criminal offense of homosexuality. Little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant man, The Imitation Game follows a genius who under nail-biting pressure helped break the codes of the Nazis with his invention, the Turing Machine, thus saving thousands of lives during World War II.
