During World War II, mathematician Alan Turing tries to crack the enigma code with help from fellow mathematicians.
His machine was never perfected, though it generated a whole field of research into what became known as “Turing Machines”.
Today we call them “computers”.
Director: Morten Tyldum
Alan Turing: Do you know why people like violence? It is because it feels good. Humans find violence deeply satisfying. But remove the satisfaction, and the act becomes… hollow.
Joan Clarke: Do you know, this morning I was on a train that went through a city that wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for you. I bought a ticket from a man who would likely be dead if it wasn’t for you. I read up, on my work, a whole field of scientific inquiry that only exists because of you. Now, if you wish you could have been normal… I can promise you I do not. The world is an infinitely better place precisely because you weren’t.
