The imitation game 2014 - Matthew Goode
The Imitation Game
"The only person that should be pardoning anybody is him. Hopefully, the film will bring to the fore what an extraordinary human being he was and how appalling (his treatment was). It’s a really shameful, disgraceful part of our history."
You will never understand the importance of what I’m creating here!
Based on the life of Alan Turing - a mathematician, code-breaker and pioneer of computer science.
In 1938, he began working for a secret British organisation called the Government Code and Cipher School. He helped the government decipher the German Enigma machine. He designed a machine - Bombe - that successfully decrypted the German war codes. In 1945 he was given the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his services.
Post-war he turned his attention to another sort of machine, and in 1949 he developed a body of work that became the basis of artificial intelligence. In 1951 he was named as a fellow of the Royal Society.
In 1952, he was tried and arrested for being a homosexual (then a criminal offence). To avoid prison, he accepted treatment through injections of estrogen for a year that were meant to neutralize his libido. All his security clearances were also withdrawn.
He died in 1954, he committed suicide.
The Imitation Game will premiere at TIFF this year!
