ToxicUnicorn December 30, 2014 Share December 30, 2014 (edited) Please forgive me if I am not seeing an already-established thread; if so, I apologize. Very few movies will pull me into the theaters to spend money these days, including quite a few of BC's (even though I love him as Sherlock). However, Benedict + the subject matter of Alan Turing and the Enigma codebreakers was enough to buy a ticket for myself and for my teenager. What a spectacular and moving performance BC gives as Turing. His work absolutely lived up to the hype for me, I was in no way disappointed. In fact, I have been trying to think of another role that has affected me so deeply (I'm old enough that my memory's not so good, but I am working hard at it) and I have not been able to come up with one. Keira Knightley is also excellent. I am not familiar with her work, but she was quite lovely and restrained. From what I've read, the rest of the supporting cast also get praise from whoever writes reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. I wasn't too impressed with them, but it doesn't matter. (ETA: excepting Alex Lawther, as young Alan Turing, who was terrific.) I know there are links to reviews of BC's performance and press talks for The Imitation Game in BC's thread in Sherlock, but didn't see a thread devoted to the movie in its entirety.
