The Imitation Game is a silent tribute to those war heroes who have never been featured in the pages of history book. Yet were the back bone in a much celebrated victory. The extraordinarily brilliant, queer, arrogant, homosexual English mathematician, Alan Turing and his band of merry men(and woman) proved to be the pivot around which the fate of the Second World War had turned in favor of the Allies. But Alan Turing and co. had faded away into oblivion.
The Imitation Game also brings to light that something as superficial as homosexuality. That could tarnish the image of a war hero. Subject him to something as horrific as chemical castration and drive him into something as shameful as suicide. Not exactly the way a person who had statistically shortened the war in Europe by 4 years, would have wanted to go. The father of theoretical computing is one of the best minds to be born on Earth.
Here is the list of films similar to The Imitation Game that I would recommend to never stop chasing your dreams and never let loose of what you want to achieve. You can watch several of these movies like The Imitation Game on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
James Hunt and Niki Lauda battle it out to beat each other in every championship race they participate. Not knowing that they are discovering the best versions of themselves in that journey. The James Hunt vs Niki Lauda rivalry is one of the glorious and celebrated rivalries in sports history still spoken about even today.
This film will teach you what it means to be competitive on the track and in life and how to make others jealous of yourself by outperforming yourselves every time you get a chance to prove yourself. This film is one of the apex of inspirational stories you might have ever heard.
