The Imitation Game

THE IMITATION GAME

To own on Blu-Ray, DVD & download from 9th March 2015

One of the cinematic events of 2014 becomes the first essential home entertainment release of 2015 as THE IMITATION GAME – beloved by critics and audiences alike – arrives on Blu-ray™, DVD and digital platforms on 9th March 2015, courtesy of STUDIOCANAL.

Based on the real life story of legendary cryptanalyst Alan Turing, THE IMITATION GAME portrays the nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team of code-breakers, endorsed by Churchill himself, at Britain’s top-secret Government Code & Cypher School at Bletchley Park during the darkest days of World War II. The film spans the key periods of Turing’s life, from his unhappy teenage years at boarding school and the triumph of his secret wartime work on the revolutionary electro-mechanical ‘Bombe’, which was capable of breaking 3,000 Enigma-generated naval codes a day, to the tragedy of his post-war decline following his conviction for a now outdated criminal offence. A complicated and troubled man, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, Turing may have been the eventual victim of an unenlightened British Establishment, but his work and legacy live on…

Starring Academy, BAFTA and Golden Globe nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek: Into Darkness, TV’s Sherlock) as Turing, Academy, BAFTA and Golden Globe nominee Keira Knightley (Begin Again, Atonement) as his confidante and equal, Joan Clarke, and featuring supporting turns from Matthew Goode (Stoker, Watchmen), Mark Strong (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy, Welcome To The Punch), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall, TV’s Penny Dreadful) and Charles Dance (TV’s Game Of Thrones, Gosford Park), THE IMITATION GAME is at once a searing piece of British drama, a brilliantly taut thriller and a posthumous honour to arguably one of Britain’s most important, most brilliant men.
