During World War II Enigma was Germany’s crowning glory when it came to thwarting the Allies attempts at intercepting and decoding messages that could change the course of the war. A machine so clever that a task force was formed and headed by one of, if not the greatest mathematical mind of the day, Alan Turing. The Top Secret Government Code & Cypher School, held at Bletchley Park, where a brilliant team of genius code breakers, endorsed by Winston Churchill himself, battle against the ravages of time and war to break Enigma.
The Imitation Game explores the life of Turing and what drove him and his genius as he designs, builds and tests his mammoth computer, that he hopes will crack Enigma and leave the German war machine reeling. Picking up key points of Turning’s life throughout the movie, from his time at boarding school and his secret that could, during the England of the 1940s could land him in prison or worse.
