Morten Tyldum's Oscar-nominated movie The Imitation Game certainly packs an emotional punch. The first time I watched it, a woman broke down as the movie ended. She sat sobbing while the credits rolled. Others stayed on in their seats, seemingly shocked by the powerful story. It's about Alan Turing, of course, Britain's forgotten but now rediscovered war hero and math genius.
The Imitation Game is turning Turing into a household name, and that's where he belongs, together with Einstein, Churchill, and Hitler--whom Turing did as much as anyone to defeat. There should be a statue of Turing in Central London, alongside Britain's other greatest war heroes.
