The film doesn't turn out to be about brilliant English mathematicians led by Benedict Cumberbatch breaking the Nazi Enigma Code. But it's more about keeping secrets in the time when there was less tolerance. Cumberbatch gives a remarkable performance as an arrogant genius who has a terrible secret. Not a stretch for him by any means. He and his team may have helped to win the war but their heroics were classified for 50 years. But it's an unfulfilled, tender love story between Alan Turing (Cumberbatch) and his computer Christopher and the actor really shines portraying the agony of double secrecy Turing had to live with. Touching and well acted, The Imitation Game is a top notch entertainment. Norway's Morten Tyldum (Headhunters) proves to be a very capable director.
