Codebreaker tells the remarkable and tragic story of one of the 20th century's most important people. Alan Turing's success breaking the German naval Enigma code helped win Word War II. And as the father of computer science and artificial intelligence, he laid the foundation for our modern world. This maverick British genius was one of the most important scientists ever, yet few people have heard his name, know his story, or understand his legacy. Instead of receiving accolades, Turing faced terrible persecution. In 1952, the British Government forced him to undergo chemical castration as punishment for his homosexuality. In despair, Turing committed suicide. He was only 41 years old. Starring Ed Stoppard and Henry Goodman, Codebreaker is an award-winning drama documentary that uses emotional and engaging reconstructions to bring Turing to life in intricate detail and rich color. Documentary elements seamlessly interconnect with drama scenes in Codebreaker to offer a three-dimensional picture of Turing, his accomplishments, his tragic end, and his lasting legacy. - DVD Container
