THURSDAY THE IMITATION GAME
8.30PM, FOXTEL MASTERPIECE ★★★★
A compelling true story of perseverance and persecution. At the apex of World War II, brilliant British mathematician Alan Turing ( Benedict Cumberbatch) was tasked with cracking the German code system that held the key to turning around the fortunes of the Allies. The film is executed on the same polished, prestige terms as The King’s Speech.
