The Imitation Game

„Are you paying attention? Good. If you are not listening carefully, you will miss things. “– With this gripping instruction the historical drama The Imitation Game starts.
This quite thrilling film is set during World War II and tells the story of Alan Turing, a highly intelligent mathematician, logician and cryptanalyst, who works at Bletchley Park for the Government Code and Cypher School. Turing, who shows signs of autistic behaviour, and the group he is working with try to do the impossible: to encrypt the Enigma Machine of the Nazis …

I strongly recommend watching The Imitation Game as it is, in my opinion, an extremely good and very interesting film. Benedict Cumberbatch was perfectly picked out to act the role of the main character and also the other cast such as Keira Knightley are excellent. This drama tells the fascinating story of Alan Turing as a hero, but also portrays him as a victim of society in a moving way and it will leave you behind stunned. (Annika Lozar, 8a)
