This month’s movie was the Historical Biopic on Alan Turing’s race against time to break the infamous Nazi Enigma code “The Imitation Game” from 2014 starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing.

How would one describe this movie? A respectful film that will leave you on the edge of your seat in the hopes that Turing can succeed.

What exactly is the plot of the movie? During World War II, the English mathematical genius Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) tries to crack the German Enigma code with help from fellow mathematicians while attempting to come to terms with his troubled private life.


Runtime: 114 minutes (1 hour and 54 minutes)

Rating: PG (Mature Theme, Violence, Not Recommended for Young Children)

Fun Fact: Benedict Cumberbatch confessed that in one of the final scenes of the film, he couldn’t stop crying and had a breakdown. It was, as he said, “Being an actor or a person that had grown incredibly fond of the character and thinking what he had suffered and how that had affected him.”

How to See it: It is currently streaming on Prime Video (Requires Paramount Plus Subscription) and Paramount Plus & can be purchased from Google Play, YouTube, & Apple TV.

Personal Rating: 7/10

Personal Feelings: I had some prior knowledge of Alan Turing before seeing the film and knew what happened to him after the war. After watching the film, I’m glad the man did what he did to save King and country but appalled at how his nation repaid him for his actions.
