The Imitation Game film

Today, for the first time since before my stroke, we went to the cinema in Cambridge. We saw " The Imitation Game" about the work of Alan Turing (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) who was very involved in de-crypting the German Enigma code.

It reckons de-crypting this powerful code saved 14M lives and shortened WW2 by 2 years. He was a brilliant man and it was so sad that he committed suicide some years after WW2 because of his gay leanings. These days sexuality matters not one bit.

Anyway, it was an excellent film and at £10 for two with free tea or coffee if we wanted it I can recommend the Cambridge Picturehouse cinema on Thursdays.
