The Imitation Game (2014)

20161011:
I usually enjoy a movie with a good story. And, as often the case with movies based on a book or true story, I end up attributing the movie for the story. Perhaps what I should be saying, however, that the adaptation was well-written.*

Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch)

In any case, because I couldn't hear the introduction in the first three minutes of the movie, I was confused whenever the movie subtly switched between past and present.**

Overall, I enjoyed the movie and would highly recommend it. It is not, however, as good as A Beautiful Mind (2001).

Joan Clarke (Keira Knightley)
