Benedict Cumberbatch (TV's SHERLOCK, STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS) shines as real-life war hero and pioneer of modern-day computing, Alan Turing. THE IMITATION GAME follows Turing as he leads a motley crew of scholars, linguists, chess champions, and intelligence officers in cracking the so-called unbreakable codes of Germany's World War II Enigma machine, potentially saving millions of lives by helping to shorten the war. Also depicted is Turing's tragic fall from grace when he was convicted of homosexuality - a crime in post-war Britain. Co-starring Academy Award®-nominee Keira Knightley of BEGIN AGAIN and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN FRANCHISE.

Critics Consensus: With an outstanding starring performance from Benedict Cumberbatch illuminating its fact-based story, The Imitation Game serves as an eminently well-made entry in the "prestige biopic" genre.
Strong performances buoy teen-friendly historical drama.
