The Imitation Game is a nail-biting race against time following Alan Turing (pioneer of modern-day computing and credited with cracking the German Enigma code) and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British establishment, but his work and legacy live on.
With World War one anniversary celebrating the memory of 100 years since day one and respecting the dead the timing of The Imitation Game is perfect especially with World War Two anniversary been next year.When you look at technology nowadays compared to the period of the film it’s fascinating how the allies won the war.
