Video Interviews: Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley on "The Imitation Game"

Benedict Cumberbatch has been leading the march to Oscar glory since "The Imitation Game" won the Audience Award at the Toronto International Film Festival. He stars in Morten Tyldum's film as Alan Turing, the man who led the charge to crack the Enigma code in World War II, saving millions of lives, before Turing had his own life destroyed because his sexuality was considered illegal. Cumberbatch is amazing in the film, finding the perfect balance of Turing's confidence and social awkwardness. He's captivating, and he's matched by Keira Knightley, in an incredible supporting turn. Both recently sat down with us to talk about the hit film, which opens this Friday, Nov. 28 in limited release before going wide in the coming weeks.
