"Movies “based on a true story” keep coming at us like Election Day fliers in the mail, but The Imitation Game is one of the few that actually deserves our full attention. It portrays the life and work of Alan Turing, one of Britain’s most extraordinary heroes, whose efforts and accomplishments remained unsung for far too long. At the same time, it is a movie about secrets; how we keep them, the importance of keeping them and of the damage they can do when uncovered by others. What starts off as a typical biopic becomes something much more than that as we watch how Turing and his crew of code breakers helped bring an end to World War II, and of how his life came to a tragic end through needless intolerance.
Celebrated actors come together for "The Imitation Game." When it came to finding the right actor to portray Alan Turing, the filmmakers could not have found one better than Benedict Cumberbatch. While other actors would have made the mistake of portraying Turing as some kind of Dr. House clone, Cumberbatch turns him into a fascinatingly complex human being who is brilliant, socially awkward, and very vulnerable in a time where being vulnerable was a huge liability."
This movie is sponsored in "Honor of Dad, Ed Clement Sr. and to all the Signal Corps Soldiers in WWII."
