Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) is about to break the Enigma code in “The Imitation Game”

Before seeing The Imitation Game, I barely had any idea who Alan Turing was. I knew I wanted to see this again the moment the credits started rolling. I found myself involved with his life. From being least popular in his English boarding school to becoming the leader of a team of code-breakers to making his own code-breaking machine named “Christopher” (his first lover in school) that is used to help his team break the Enigma code as a possibility to end World War II to becoming convicted of indecency (homosexuality). His machine became an inspiration to the computer that I’m writing this review on right now. Benedict Cumberbatch’s performance is a wonderful tribute to Turing, capturing his mannerisms and subtlety. I loved every bit of this funny, heartbreaking, and moving historical piece.

4/4
