THE IMITATION GAME at theaters 1/2015

THE IMITATION GAME – During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) 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 thousands of lives.

Q-Tips say: A great movie about cracking the unbreakable codes of German’s World War II and the personal lives of the people involved. Detailed account of the process and government difficulties encountered while building a machine that could crack the code. Yes, he was gay but a gay genius. No nudity, bad language, etc. Enjoy, we did!
