ENIGMA is an exciting tale of love, espionage, patriotism and betrayal set during World War II from acclaimed director Michael Apted (Enough), Oscar(r) - winning screenwriter Tom Stoppard (Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen: Shakespeare in Love, 1998) and produced by rock star Mick Jagger and "Saturday Night Live" creator Lorne Michaels. Still reeling from the devastating disappearance of his lover Claire, (Saffron Burrows - Time Code), brilliant code-breaker Tom Jericho, (Dougray Scott - Mission Impossible II), is summoned to Britain's top-secret intelligence campus.

With the help of Claire's roommate Hester, (Oscar(r) nominee Kate Winslet - Best Actress in a Leading Role: Titanic, 1997; Best Actress in a Supporting Role: Sense and Sensibility, 1995 and Iris, 2001), 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.
