The Imitation Game

The story is about the life of an English mathematician Alan Turing who was involved in breaking code during world war two.

Liked the flashbacks across the present time, during the war and Turing's childhood days. Could identify with his frustrations when the program didn't work as he expected the first time round.

The Art of Racing in the Rain

The story is about the life of a dog living with a man who aspires to be a great racer.

Liked the interesting animation sequence with the zebra in the middle of the film! The plot is a little predictable and I didn't quite understand the technical details on how the protagonist was able to do better in the rain.
