A comparison could be made to Michael Apted's 2001 film "Enigma".
Update: Dec. 24
Check out Michael Gerson's op-ed in the Washington Post Dec. 23, "the geniuses among us", also titled "'The Imitation Game's' Lesson for Society", link here. Again, Cumberbatch makes the genius character seem "normal" to a 21st century person -- your boss if you work for a tech company. His "brain" make make connections that most of us don't -- but that can come at a price, early pruning of connections often needed in more commonly expected social functionality as "part of the group". The article points out that siblings and relatives of kids with autism are often in the creative arts. But some people do "have it all". You do meet young adults who seem to function creatively without loss of social acumen. Reid Ewing's "free" videos (unfortunately, not available now) demonstrate that point.
