The Imitation Game (Directed by Morten Tyldum; Written by Andrew Hodges and Graham Moore)
Based on the real life story of legendary cryptanalyst Alan Turing, this film portrays the nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team of code-breakers during the darkest days of World War II.
Starring: Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Rory Kinnear, Charles Dance, Mark Strong, Tom Goodman-Hill, Steven Waddington
Why I loved this film: This is a true story, sympathetically told, with brilliant performances all round and a stand-out Turing from the Oscar-worthy Benedict Cumberbatch. Meandering through Alan Turing's life since school until shortly before his death, the script will have your attention as well as a mixture of emotions, it had me smiling shortly before my eyes filled with tears.
Overall, I highly recommend it!
