Alan Turing, the British inventor of a computing machine that helped break coded messages during Word War II, is the subject of a new film from executive producer Patrick Sammon. Turing was prosecuted for his homosexuality, receiving a sentence of chemical castration. He committed suicide in 1954.
"I promise you'll leave the movie theater
with a lot to think about. You'll think about the senseless tragedy.
You'll probably be angry, too, and you should be. Society's
intolerance cut short the life of this genius," Sammon writes.
