Watch The Imitation Game (2014) online for free on 123Movies. Three specific time periods in the life of Cambridge University Mathematics professor Alan Turing are presented. The first is the span of WWII, at the beginning of which he, an expert of puzzle solving, is hired by the British government to work within a team whose secret project is to break what is largely seen as an unbreakable Nazi code machine, named Enigma, which would give the Allies an advantage and possibly end the war. The problem: Enigma is recoded every day. Even if the team can decipher a coded message, that code would be obsolete the next day, and there are quintillions of possible new code settings that could be input. Largely arrogant, antisocial, solitary and literal-minded, Alan is the bane of the team’s existence, especially to his superior, Commander Denniston, and Hugh Alexander, the team’s initial leader. While Hugh and the rest strive to break the day-to-day codes (believing it the only way to learn the secret of Enigma), Alan works alone to develop a machine with a somewhat artificial intelligence, which he believes is required to break any code input into Enigma. Alan must convince Denniston to fund a machine costing a hefty £100,000 to build. The tone of the team slowly changes with the inclusion of Joan Clarke, the only female. She not only adds another brilliant mind to the mix but provides Alan social guidance on how to behave to get things done. Traditional values threaten Joan’s participation – not by any chauvinistic regard from her male team members but by a view of her place in the world as someone’s wife from her conventional parents. The second time period is 1928, when Alan is a youth attending boarding school. Even then, he is seen as different and bullied accordingly. His only real friend (and secret crush) is Christopher Morcom, for whom Alan will later name his code-breaking machine. The third time period is 1951, when Alan’s Manchester home is reported broken into by his neighbor. With nothing stolen, Alan’s quick dismissal causes Detective Robert Nock to believe he’s hiding something. What follows has far reaching consequences for Alan’s life as Nock digs to find what’s hidden beneath the lack of surface information.
