Bloomberg toasted the producer, “Teddy, I’ve known your father longer than you have, ” and said Stephen was known for “overworking and underpaying.”

The director, Morten Tyldum said, “This man was one of the most important men in the last century, one of the big thinkers, and has sort of been erased from history and pushed to the shadows because he was a gay man … Alan Turing’s spirit has been looming over this project from its beginning. You better get this right. He deserves it. We’re very proud of this movie.”
