It is a 2014 American historical thriller film directed by  Morten Tyldum, with a screenplay  based on the biography  "Alan Turing: The Enigma"  by  Andrew Hodges.  

During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of 'gross indecency', an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offense of homosexuality - little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing.  As a matter of fact, Alan Turing had decrypted German intelligence codes for the British government during World War II.
