"It's a brilliant film!" -Roger Ebert
Enigma is an exciting tale of love, espionage, patriotism and betrayal set during World War II from acclaimed director Michael Apted (Enough) and Oscar winning screenwriter Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, 1988) and produced by Mick Jagger and Lorne Michaels.
Still reeling from the devastating disappearance of his lover Claire (Saffron Burrows, Timecode), brilliant code-breaker Tom Jericho (Dougray Scott, Mission Impossible II) is summoned to Britain's top-secret intelligence campus. There he faces his toughest assignment- crack the Nazis' infamous Enigma code. With the help of Claire's roommate Hester (Oscar Nominee Kate Winslet), and with a ruthless secret agent (Jeremy Northam, Gosford Park) in hot pursuit, the two must piece together the puzzle that links Claire's disappearance to U-boats closing in on Allied cargo ships, and a mass grave in Poland.
Enigma has been hailed as a thinking person's thriller that's "mind twisting fun, with first rate performances." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.
