Genius British logician and cryptologist Alan Turing helps crack Germany’s Enigma Code during World War II but is later prosecuted by his government for illegal homosexual acts.

During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of ‘gross indecency’, an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offense of homosexuality – little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. Famously leading a motley group of scholars, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers, he was credited with cracking the so-called unbreakable codes of Germany’s World War II Enigma machine. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, THE IMITATION GAME follows a genius who under nail-biting pressure helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save thousands of lives.

“Unlike The King’s Speech, which won a clutch of Oscars for its dull propriety and Masterpiece Theater vibe, The Imitation Game is vibrant and lively, engaging you on several levels.”
– MIAMI HERALD

“The movie is undeniably strong in its sense of a bright light burned out too soon, and the often undignified fate of those who dare to chafe at society’s established norms.”
– VARIETY

“Engrossing, nicely textured and sadly tragic …”
– HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“Strong, stirring, triumphant and tragic, The Imitation Game may be about a man who changed the world, but it’s also about the world that destroyed a man.”
– FILM.COM

“The film’s prime force is Cumberbatch, a great actor whose talent shines here on its highest beams. It’s an explosive, emotionally complex performance.”
– ROLLING STONE

“Good as he’s been in the past … the richness and complexity of Turing’s character make this portrayal of an arrogant, difficult, sure-of-himself individual the role of Cumberbatch’s career.”
– LOS ANGLES TIMES

“Hidden codes, secret meanings and mixed messages pulse through the reliable, old-fashioned, buzzing copper wires of this true-life British period drama.”
– TIME OUT

“It’s a sad and heartbreaking story that keeps you nailed to the screen for its entire 114-minute running time.”
– NEW YORK OBSERVER

“Based on the biography by Andrew Hodges, Imitation illuminates Turing’s brilliance in an engrossing and moving film that features a standout, Oscar-worthy performance by Benedict Cumberbatch.”
– USA TODAY

” ‘The Imitation Game’ is a highly conventional movie about a profoundly unusual man. This is not entirely a bad thing.”
– NEW YORK TIMES

“There’s truth to it. Turing’s story is indeed hard to imagine. Thanks to Cumberbatch’s committed performance, a lot more people will know it.”
