|This is the story of mathematical genius Alan Turing (Derek Jacobi), the man who designed the computer that cracked the German Enigma code and, it is argued, enabled the allies to win World War II. It's also the story of a tormented and truthful man whose admittance to homosexuality, at a time when it was illegal, presented problems for him, his family, his colleagues, and the State's preoccupation with National Security. Whether interpreting top-secret documents, refusing to marry the assistant who's in love with him (Amanda Root), or facing his crumbling private life, Turing pulls no punches. And Hugh Whitemore's screenplay, based on his play and Andrew Hodges' book, Alan Turing: The Enigma, is presented with all the humor, compassion and intellectual importance it deserves.|
