The Imitation Game

The British historical thriller film The Imitation Game (2014) starring Benedict Cumberbatch as  Alan Turing (1912-1954), the brilliant mathematician who cracked the Enigma code used by Nazi Germany and the father of modern computing  is a very interesting film.

Alan Turing

During the Second World War Turing worked for Britain's codebreaking centre at Bletchley Park. He was later persecuted by the government for being homosexual and put on trial for homosexual acts. Found guilty and ordered to undergo humiliating hormone therapy, he committed suicide two years later.

I saw the film recently in Lisbon.
When it started I realized I had the book at home.

Alan Touring built "the bombe" to help decipher the Enigma code when he worked at Bletchley Park.

Bletchley Park can be explored today with daily visits.
