Enigma

This movie was a tight little thriller.  While I enjoyed the movie I had a hard time with the fact that it was a very fictional story with very fictional people based on true events.  However, there were actual people that lived the story and were heroes – why not tell their story?  It didn’t take away from the enjoyment but I kept going back to that question.  In subsequent years better movies were made about Allen Turing.
