Ending February 26: “IMITATION GAME” — This film is nominated for 8 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Actor, Supporting Actress and director. It is an intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man; a genius who, under nail biting pressure, helped shorten World War Two and save thousands of lives. Alan Turing led a motley group of scholars, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers in cracking Nazi Germany’s Enigma machine, the supposedly unbreakable Ultra secret code used for all military messages. In doing so, he invented modern day computers. But in 1952, the police would arrest him on charges of “gross indecency.” Since his work was still classified, no one knew he was a hero. He was convicted of being a homosexual, a crime at that time in Great Britain. “Imitation Game” ends Thursday, February 26 at the Dells Theatre. 114 minutes. It’s rated PG-13 for some sexual references mature thematic material and historical smoking.
