Trivia

Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge's maternal grandmother, used to work at Bletchley Park, just like Alan Turing and his team of codebreakers. See more »

Goofs

Turning lists the Ardennes as one of the battle influenced by Enigma. In actuality that battle opened as a surprise to the Allies because the Germans did not use Enigma to transmit orders for that battle, but relied on telephone communications which could not be tracked at the time. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Alan Turing: Are you paying attention? Good. If you're not listening carefully you will miss things. Important things. I will not pause, I will not repeat myself, and you will not interrupt me. If you think that because you're sitting where you are and I am sitting where I am that you are in control of what is about to happen, you 're mistaken. I am in control, because I know things that you do not know.

User Reviews

 
An instant classic
8 October 2014 | by (Cheshire, UK) – See all my reviews

A movie which oozes Britishness from every frame, The Imitation Game is an instant classic. Wartime Britain is depicted vividly, if a little caricatured, with an autumnal palette and a jaunty air.

A true story, sympathetically told, with good performances all round and a stand-out Turing from the indefatigable Mr Cumberbatch. The young Turing is also extremely well realised by Alex Lawther.

Meandering through Alan Turing's life since school until shortly before his death, the script demands your attention and regularly makes you smile.

Highly recommended.
