Following the Centenary theme of the British Film Festival, another very good film is standing in the wings waiting to be released in the USA.
Benedict Cumberbatch is cast as Alan Turing. This film chronicles Turing’s life as he works against time to decipher the German Enigma code. Once applauded as a hero, having saved thousands of lives, his life changes when he is considered to have broken laws passed in Parliament outlawing homosexuality. These laws have long since been abandoned by a more enlightened British House, but too late for the genius of Alan Turing.
