Storyline

The highs and lows of Alan Turing's life, tracking his extraordinary accomplishments, his government persecution through to his tragic death in 1954. In the last 18 months of his short life, Turing visited a psychiatrist, Dr. Franz Greenbaum, who tried to help him. Each therapy session in this drama documentary is based on real events. The conversations between Turing and Greenbaum explore the pivotal moments in his controversial life and examine the pressures that may have contributed to his early death. The film also includes the testimony of people who actually knew and remember Turing. Plus, this film features interviews with contemporary experts from the world of technology and high science including Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. These contributors bring Turing's exciting impact up to the present day, explaining why, in many ways, modern technology has only just begun to explore the potential of Turing's ideas.

Light on science...
17 November 2014 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

heavy on social indoctrination....

The main reason I tried to watch this film was to learn about Turing's professional accomplishments. Instead, I had to endure for more than 70% of the running time the victimization of Turing.

The guy was a homosexual, and because of it, it seems, it has reached sainthood...

The more interesting questions were never answered: Why was he a genius? How did he decode the enigma machine? Why is he so important for computers and computer sciences?

Did learn anything from it. I was only reminded many, many times that Turing was gay...
