    I was looking at going to an Astrology Meeting when I saw this:

    In an exciting lecture from local Dallas-area Astrologer Diane Eichenbaum, we will learn techniques she uses when interpreting Natal Charts. She will specifically delve into the chart of noted British pioneering computer scientist Alan Turing. Turing’s work with cryptography and code breaking helped the Allies defeat the Nazis in World War II. He was convicted of indecency since homosexual acts were criminal offenses at the time.

    The Imitation Game is a 2014 movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightly where Cumberbatch plays Turing. It is still playing in some theaters and is currently available for purchase on demand through Vudu. It is expected to be available on Netflix DVD and other outlets on 3/31/2015.

    I would have taken an interest in seeing the movie if I had known that.

    The homosexuality is played down or not played at all in the movie?

    It plays a part yes. Back then homosexuality was illegal and he had a choice-prison or hormone therapy.
    He chose the hormone therapy which chemically castrated him. Its really sad actually. They knighted him I think many years later (after killing him slowly).
