"One of the greatest stories of our time began back in the darkest days of the Second World War. Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) was a brilliant Cambridge mathematician hired by the British military to break Nazi codes. His work leading a group of misfit geniuses (Keira Knightly, Matthew Goode, Rory Kinnear) didn't only shorten the war, it pushed technology to the point where computers could be imagined. But Turing paid a price" (The Toronto International Film Festival, 2014).
