At first I was not attracted by this movie due to its trailer. Three minutes or less are not enough in order to introduce you into the very core of it. So I skipped it. For quite a while. Until now, when my daughter shared her To Watch & Watched movie list. Even so, it was not the very first to watch.

Alan Turing is the scientist who successfully managed to decipher the German coding machine during World War II, using one of the very first computers, and electromechanical one. The Imitation Game is about his work along with his team to complete this computer, the predecessor of the “digital computer”, and also some hidden aspects of his own life.
The idea from Ex Machina is based on Turing Test, a test named by Alan Turing The Imitation Game.
The purpose of this game is explained by Alan Turing himself (actually by the actor playing Turing’s character) in one of the scenes in The Imitation Game (the movie).
