Graham Moore & A Sherlockian’s Guide to Enigma

Graham Moore left the 87th Academy Awards with a shiny statuette and he was no stranger to enigmas when he decided to crack Enigma for an audience of millions. The young screenwriter is a master when it comes to being successful at first try, at least at the eyes of the public. The recent Academy Award winner for Best Adapted Screenplay is widely known for his debut novel The Sherlockian, listed as a New York Times best-seller.

He has fallen down a Holmes well.  He’s going to take a lot of readers with him too. Thanks to the sly self-awareness that keeps “The Sherlockian” smart and agile, it’s possible to enjoy this book’s laughable affectations and still be seduced by them.

Moore was part of the writing team in 10 Things I Hate About You (the series, not the movie with Heath Ledger). At the start os his career he also directed the short-film The Waiting Room with his buddy Ben Epstein.
The author just won the Academy Award for his contribution to The Imitation Game, but is already embarking on a new journey headed to the big screen. He is to write the adapted screenplay for The Devil in the White City, a Warner Bros production staring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Graham Moore certainly proves to have bundles of potencial, but he hasn’t actually done much (the guy is 33, we are not complaining). We hope Hollywood keeps finding a job for this young, talented writer. He still has a long lasting career to go.
