Synopsis:

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 ended up arresting Turing on charges of 'gross indecency', but little did they know then that they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing.

An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, The Imitation Game follows a genius who shortened the war under nail-biting pressure and, in turn, saved thousands of lives.
