When Britain declares war on Nazi Germany in 1939, brilliant British mathematician Alan Turing becomes part of the team responsible for decoding messages they have intercepted from the Nazis, who are using the formidable Enigma machine to hide their plans. Desperate to figure out how to break their code, Turing begins to develop his own complex computer and assembles a team of mathematicians and scientists who could potentially turn the tide and win the war. Also considering Turing’s repressed sexuality and difficult personality, The Imitation Game is an historical drama that highlights the importance of maths and science in the real world.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
