The Imitation Game (2014) Rated PG-13

The Imitation GameDuring World War II, Alan Turing cracked the German enigma code that changed the war and the world with computers. Based on the book, Alan Turing: The Enigma by Andrew Hodges. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Allen Leech, Mark Strong

There is no mistaking that this film is one of the best stories of the year.  Add in an amazing cast, and Turing’s story is told to perfection. Benedict Cumberbatch seemed to me like an odd choice at first for Turing, but he portrayed him well, innately understanding the struggle Turing faced with his internal demons.  Keira Knightley expertly played  Joan Clarke, Turing’s best friend and co-worker.  I guess the only thing I would have changed about her performance was her appearance.   She came across beautiful, as always, but in life, Clarke was mousier, and I would have liked to see Knightley tackle that dimension of her character. I can’t say anything bad about Matthew Goode, Allen Leech, and Mark Strong, all actors that I love to watch.  This Oscar-winning film is worth a watch.
