Benedict Cumberbatch was amazing, as per usual.

I went with a friend who actually works for Microsoft but knew next to nothing about Turing, the story of Enigma and what ended up happening to Turing. She was gutted when the movie finished and so incredulous that he wasn't pardoned until 2013. "That was just less than TWO YEARS ago!" she said.

This is a story that needs to be told, but they do almost make Alan Turing a saint. I seem to remember the Enigma movie had more about affairs he had, which led to him being suspected as a spy. Besides his teenage crush, they make him rather asexual.

Undoubtedly this will be nominated for Best Picture and so will Benedict. In another year, I could see this being an Oscar favorite, but I doubt it will win. Eddie Raymane made such a physical transformation as Hawking -- I see him winning the battle of the brainiacs and Boyhood FTW.
