By Charlie David Page
3rd May 2015

During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch – 'Sherlock', 'Hawking') to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of ‘gross indecency,’ an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offense of homosexuality – little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing.

Famously leading a motley group of scholars, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers, he was credited with cracking the so-called unbreakable codes of Germany’s World War II Enigma machine. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, The Imitation Game follows a genius who under nail-biting pressure helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save millions of lives.

'The Imitation Game' received eight Academy Award nominations 2014 including, Best Picture, Best Actor for Benedict Cumberbatch, Best Supporting Actress for Keira Knightley ('Begin Again', 'Atonement') Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Score, Best Product Design, Best Director for Morten Tyldum ('Head Hunters', 'Buddy') and Best Film Editing.
