THE IMITATION GAME reveals a new piece in the puzzle of the Allied victory in World War II. With a gift for storytelling both pulse-pounding and pensive, director Morten Tyldum celebrates the story behind the iconic wartime images by telling the tale of the unlikely team who cracked Nazi Germany's Enigma code. The power of the film is embedded in the triumphs and tragedies of Alan Turing, an enigma himself brilliantly deciphered by Benedict Cumberbatch. With a stellar ensemble cast set aglow by the radiant Keira Knightley, the film elevates Turing's inimitable accomplishments to a proper place in history.
