A young man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor: a fearsome Bengal tiger.
After a stint in a mental institution, former teacher Pat Solitano moves back in with his parents and tries to reconcile with his ex-wife. Things get more challenging when Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious girl with problems of her own.
David O. Russell

Based on the real life story of legendary cryptanalyst Alan Turing, the film portrays the nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team of code-breakers at Britain's top-secret Government Code and Cypher School at Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II.Written by
Google, which also sponsored the New York Premiere of the film, launched a competition called "The Code-Cracking Challenge" on 23 November 2014. It was a skill contest where entrants must crack a code provided by Google. The prizes would be awarded to entrants who crack the code and submit their entry the fastest. See more »
Alan Turing's team calls him out, saying they are the only ones who have been making anything progress. His team mentions that they used letter frequency analysis, to break some of the transmissions. However, letter frequency analysis is an attack that works well on substitution ciphers, but wouldn't have worked well on the Enigma. Letter frequency analysis works by analysis the frequency of letters in a language, as well as the frequency of letters in a cipher text. You then replace the cipher text letters with the corresponding language letter as ranked by frequency. If the newly generated plaintext is not fully decrypted, a person can usually find the errors easily. This attack would not work well on the Enigma, as it was not a simple substitution cipher. The rotors would click forward one position for each letter entered. Therefore, the key was, in part, based on the position of the letter in the plaintext. Typing the same letter consecutively would return a different cipher letter for each iteration of the letter, because the key for letter n is related to letter n-1. See more »
Are you paying attention? Good. If you're not listening carefully you will miss things. Important things. I will not pause, I will not repeat myself, and you will not interrupt me. If you think that because you're sitting where you are and I am sitting where I am that you are in control of what is about to happen, you 're mistaken. I am in control, because I know things that you do not know.

It is a shame this movie is a stack of lies.First time polish broke enigma it was in 1932, 1933 they created first working example of Enigma, and first anti-enigma device, narrowing settings combination to 105 456. In 1936 Germans changed the design, and Polish answered with Rejewsky bomb, machine with 6 enigma connected together,breaking new daily code in 2 hours.Another German changes required building 54 different machine designs, and Poland didn't have enough money so they asked allies to help.July 1939 Uk and French representatives visited Warsaw and got all documentation how to break ENIGMA.After beginning of the war, polish encoders moved to Paris, and British started Bletchley Park operation. Unfortunately, Polish people are always forgotten, because they are not part of US/UK/France/Germany nation.Shame on you Britain.
