Thriller ‘The Imitation Game’ centres on the English mathematician and cryptographer who helped crack the Nazi’s Enigma code during World War II.
As the Allied forces fought on the battlefields, a team of young geniuses led by the brilliant computer scientist Alan Turing were in a race against time at the Bletchley Park code-breaking centre, trying desperately to demystify the Enigma code used by the Axis powers to protect their communications.
Despite Turing’s contributions to the war effort, he was later prosecuted for acts of ‘gross indecency’ after engaging in homosexual relations. ‘The Imitation Game’ also stars Keira Knightley (Atonement).
The Imitation game has been nominated for five OSCAR and nine BAFTA awards, including Best Film, Outstanding British Film, Best Leading Actor, and Best Supporting Actress.
