Like many people, British actor Benedict Cumberbatch knew very little about Alan Turing, the genius mathematician he portrays in "The Imagination Game," who helped to hasten the end of World War II by cracking Germany's wartime communications code.The film pieces together Turing's story, work, relationships and injustices he suffered, such as chemical castration because of his homosexuality.Cumberbatch's portrayal of the awkward, sensitive Turing has made him a contender for a Best Actor Oscar nomination and Morten Tyldum is tipped to a receive Best Director nod. Tyldum said he never envisioned anyone but Cumberbatch in the role.
