Imitation Game, a film
We have been viewing the various films that had been nominated for this year's Oscars.
So far, most everything we have viewed surpassed the actual winner of the Oscar.
Benedict gave the most compelling performance in this fact based film of how an English team, lead by Alan Turning, broke the German's secret code, eventually turning the tide for the Allies to win WWII.
That we were unable to, even momentarily, to take our eyes from this film is amazing - sort of like someone casting a fishing line and never moving until the fish has taken the bait and been brought on board.
Hollywood really needs to take a lesson from those outside the industry - so far everyone that I have spoken to about this film has basically felt the same way - this one SHOULD have won the Oscar for Best Picture, and at least, Benedict should have tied with the winner of Best Actor.
Well worth seeing.
