If someone invites you to go see the new film, The Imitation Game, quickly accept the invitation. It's thrilling. It's touching. It's relevant and I'd rank it as one of the top ten best films I've seen this year. The story is based on the life and extraordinary genius of Alan Turing. He was a British mathematician and logician whose brain in itself was an amazing computer. During the darkest days of World War II, he broke Hitler's Enigma code. This was a monumental achievement. You will learn just how monumental his achievements were when you see The Imitation Game.
The thing about Turing in The Imitation Game is that he does care about people. He cares about the world around him. He cares about Joan. Yet, like in his boarding school boyhood, society has rudely put him in a confined space. He could have done so much more for humanity if the legal treatment of him had not been so beastly.
"Sometimes it is the people no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine."
I plan on seeing The Imitation Game again. Excellent film. It deserves a Best Picture Oscar nomination. I'd love to see Benedict Cumberbatch nominated for Best Actor.
