Directed by Jeremy Saulnier, the movie is a surreal mystery about a remote village in Alaska, beset by wolves.

The Imitation Game: The British Historical Drama film, directed by Morten Tyldum is based on the biography – Alan Turing: The Enigma by Andrew Hodges. The film focuses on Turing’s Heroics in World War II, when he worked for the British intelligence service and played a key role in breaking the German “Enigma” code. Starred by Bendict Cumberbatch, the film is criticized by some for its inaccurate portrayal of historical events, and for downplaying Turing’s homosexuality, a key element of his original struggles.
