The Imitation Game was premiered at the ongoing Toronto Film
Festival and we must say that Benedict Cumberbatch has
given a captivating performance in the biopic. Benedict who played
the famous Alan Turing has been getting many accolades for his
breathtaking performance in The Imitation Game. The Sherlock star
is seen playing Alan Turing, the Second World War code-breaker in
The Imitation Game.
The famous British mathematician and code-breaker Alan Turing
was convicted in 1951 for gross indecency over a homosexual act
which was then illegal and a crime in UK. He died in 1954, 16 days
before his 42nd birthday, due to cyanide poisoning.
The Imitation Game shows flashback on the life of Alan Turing,
his childhood and activities done during the WWII. The movie also
stars Keira Knightley. This is the second
time Benedict and Keira have worked together on-screen. The pair
starred together in the adaptation of Ian McEwan's bestseller
Atonement in 2007 where Benedict played a supporting role.
Apart from Benedict Cumberbacth, Keira Knightley is also getting
praises for her contemporary role in The Imitation Game.
As both Benedict and Keira are getting good response after The
Imitation Game premiered at TIFF 2014, we really think that the
A-listers might get nominated for Oscars next year.
