My absolute favorite movie is The Imitation Game with Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley, and I love this movie for these reasons:
- The lesson of not giving in to naysayers is showcased throughout the movie.
- As a computationalist, I am proud to see my field obtain more visibility in the public eye.
- And duh – Benedict Cumberbatch!
However, one of my favorite scenes in the movie is when school-age Alan Turing is walking with his only friend, Christopher. Alan’s perceived oddities make him a target of ridicule among his classmates, but Christopher makes this very poignant statement: “Sometimes it is the people no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.”
