The Incredible 'The Imitation Game'.
I took myself off to the movies on Saturday afternoon - which is a rare treat indeed. A solo movie jaunt, and no one to share the popcorn with. Actually, if you must know, I didn't have popcorn. I had a choc top. It's almost compulsory to do so.
I've really, really wanted to see The Imitation Game since it first hit the big screen.
And a little-known story (war altering) about WWII.
A film about the incredible mind of Alan Turing. The creator of the world's first computer.
Honestly, since watching this, I haven't stopped thinking about it. There's so much to contemplate. To digest. To mull over.
You know those movies when you come out and feel like you really need to chat with someone about it, to debrief? This, for me, was one of those.
From the performances of Cumberbatch and Knightley (and everyone else) to the true story, my mind was completely blown. It was beautiful, incredible, funny (in some parts) and so hauntingly sad.
If you've seen it, I'd love to know what you think!
