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 is the story of a genius who under nail-biting pressure helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save thousands of lives.

THE IMITATION GAME is rated PG-13 and has a running time of 114 minutes. Blu-Ray™ and DVD special features include The Making of THE IMITATION GAME, deleted scenes and special commentary.  The Blu-Ray™ will also include the exclusive “Q&A Highlights” special feature.

    I don’t know why, but try as I do I just can’t become a fan of Benedict Cumberbatch. Isn’t he slated to be Dr. Strange? 🙁
