The Imitation Game is not only well executed and utterly mesmerising, but it also matters greatly. As a piece of storytelling it is one of the most important films of our time, telling a story many have never heard of but should hear; the story of Alan Turing. Turing is played brilliantly by Benedict Cumberbatch who carries this emotional film, with director Morten Tyldum immersing the audience in the darkness of war and code breaking. Graham Moore deserves the utmost respect for his writing as he delivers one of the most thought provoking screenplays I have experienced. Pure genius.
