During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of gross indecency, an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offense of homosexuality.


Little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing. Famously leading a motley group of scholars, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers, he was credited with cracking the so-called unbreakable codes of Germany’s World War II Enigma machine. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, THE IMITATION GAME follows a genius who under nail-biting pressure helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save millions of lives.


THE IMITATION GAME stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley, was directed by Morten Tyldum and written by Graham. The film was nominated for 8 Academy Awards, 9 BAFTAs, 5 Golden Globes, 3 SAG Awards, and it won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival. Graham’s screenplay won the Academy Award, the Writer’s Guild of America Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, and the PEN Center USA Literary Award for Best Screenplay in 2015.
