Should be seen if only because it presents a great deal of finely done workaday detail of the most closely guarded secret of WWII. The breaking of the German military codes by the world's first electronic computer was probably the single most important advantage of the Allies in the war. There is the overlay of a suspenseful enough spy tale, but the main thrill is to see a recreation of the legendary super secret country estate, Bletchley Park, where Alan Turing and other highly gifted young mathematicians and scientists gave the decisive blow to Nazi Germany. Tom Stoppard's script does a neat job of simplifying the complexities and putting forth a sense of the atmosphere of exhausting hard work and fate which must have constantly hung in the air.
