Very excited about this film, especially since the trailer shows that Alan Turing’s homosexuality will be a topic as well.
“In THE IMITATION GAME, Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Alan Turing, the genius British mathematician, logician, cryptologist and computer scientist who led the charge to crack the German Enigma Code that helped the Allies win WWII. Turing went on to assist with the development of computers at the University of Manchester after the war, but was prosecuted by the UK government in 1952 for homosexual acts which the country deemed illegal.” – The Weinstein Company
Benedict Cumberbatch has a knack for playing the smartest guy in the room. The film also stars Keira Knightley, Charles Dance, and Mark Strong. ‘The Imitation Game‘ opens November 21st.
