Product Description

Product Description

Documentary drama about British codebreaker and computer scientist Alan Turing. After serving as a codebreaker during World War II, Turing designed the Automatic Computing Engine and helped to develop the Manchester computers. In 1952 he was convicted of homosexual acts and to avoid going to prison he accepted a course of hormonal injections to reduce his sex drive. Two years later he was found dead and was reported to have committed suicide, though many believe it to have been accidental. The film features contributions from those who knew him and experts who explain how his work has proved significant to the development of technology, while Ed Stoppard portrays Turing in re-enactments of his conversations with psychiatrist Dr. Franz Greenbaum (Henry Goodman).

If you are looking for a film then do not pick this. It is a documentary with small snippets of acting to support the story being told.
As a documentary it is well made but should not be advertised as a film very dissapointed. Lovefilm should make it clear that it is not a film.

This is a documentary with bits of film clips and not a Film. In fact I think I might have seen it on TV some time back. So I was very disappointed hence my 2 star rating.

I really enjoyed watching this film which was really interesting however I did not give it 5 stars as it is really not a 'film' but a documentary with some acting
