The Imitation Game: Film discussion with Dick Adler

Wednesday, September 16, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:45pm

Benedict Cumberbatch plays the role of Alan Turing, the pioneer of modern-day computing, who was credited with cracking the codes of Germany’s World War II Enigma machine. During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered Turing’s home to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting him on charges that would lead to his conviction for the criminal offence of homosexuality. Nominated for 8 Academy Awards, the film was directed by Morten Tyldum.
