Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) is considered by some to be the father of computing. It springs from his brilliance in solving the secret codes from Nazi Germany’s Enigma machine, which helped the Allies win the war. In the 50s, he was arrested and his solitary life took an unfortunate turn. Cumberbatch turns in a nuanced and touching performance without ever being pitiful (Alex Lawther is also poignant as the young Turing). The intelligent and sometimes humorous screenplay provides a solid groundwork for this compelling story. What could have been a dry lesson in code-breaking turns into a touching look at a fascinating personality.
