Studiocanal reveals the first look at THE IMITATION GAME, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch as computing pioneer and German Enigma code-breaker Alan Turning. The stellar cast also features Keira Knightly, Matthew Goode, Mark Strong, Rory Kinnear, Charles Dance, Allen Leech and Matthew Beard.
THE IMITATION GAME is a nail-biting race against time following Alan Turing (pioneer of modern-day computing and credited with cracking the German Enigma code) and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II.
Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British establishment, but his work and legacy live on.
THE IMITATION GAME will be the opening film at this year’s London Film Festival and will be released into UK cinemas November 14.
