Benedict Cumberbatch’s roundly acclaimed performance anchors the incredible, Oscar-winning story of code-breaker Alan Turing.

Director: Morten Tyldum

Overview

Benedict Cumberbatch’s roundly acclaimed performance does cinematic justice to the vision and determination of British cryptanalyst Alan Turing, in director Morten Tyldum’s potent mixture of thoughtful drama and nail-biting suspense.

With Graham Moore’s Oscar-winning screenplay alternating between three periods of Turing’s life, from formative childhood experiences to the nerve-wracking work as chief code-breaker at Bletchley Park to his eventual arrest and conviction for homosexuality, The Imitation Game is a sophisticated and rousing drama, and a necessary corrective to prior injustices against this great patriot’s name. The Imitation Game was opening film of the London Film Festival 2014.
