The Imitation Game tells the dramatic true story of the life of one of the key figures in the Allied victory during World War II, scientific genius Alan Turing. In 1939 Turing is a brilliant mathematician recruited as a codebreaker by the Government Code and Cypher School during the beginning of the second world war. With clever outreach tactics he soon puts together a group composed of brilliant minds in several fields. He also manages to convince his superiors to fund the building of a revolutionary new machine called the Bombe. This primitive computer will help the British overcome the most powerful tool in the German repertoire, the Enigma Machine and its unbreakable and ever shifting coded communications.

Interspersed with the war thriller, the film shows Turing throughout his life, from his lonely youth at boarding schools, to his friendship with fellow codebreaker Joan Clarke (Keira Knightley) and finally to the post-war years and his shameful treatment by the British government.

Also starring Mark Strong, Charles Dance, and Matthew Goode. Directed by Morten Tyldum with a screenplay by Andrew Hodges.
