Enigma (2001) - Details


In March 1943, the cryptanalysts at Bletchley Park, Britain's code-breaking centre, are facing their worse nightmare: Nazi U-boats have unexpectedly changed their Enigma cipher and a merchant shipping convoy with 10,000 people on board is in peril. The authorities turn for help to Tom Jericho (Dougray Scott), a brilliant young mathematician and code-breaker. Unknown to his colleagues, Jericho also has another equally baffling enigma of his own to unravel: Claire (Saffron Burrows), the woman he loves has disappeared and he suspects there may be a spy in Bletchley. To get to the bottom of both mysteries, he enlists the help of Hester (Kate Winslet), Claire's friend.
