Anna Karenina deleted scene: “The Mazurka”

"The Imitation Game" Review Collection (to be updated)



As Turing’s colleague/eventual wife Joan Clarke, Keira Knightley does exceptional work in a role that could have easily been expanded — much of her screen time is spent humanizing Turing by showing his capacity for non-romantic love and affection despite her IQ coming closer to his than anyone else’s. Her brilliance isn’t her defining characteristic, as Turing’s is, but Knightley joins her co-star in maximizing a familiar, even underwritten role.


A historical drama about WWII cryptographer Alan Turing, “The Imitation Game” is a kudos candidate in multiple categories, including the superb performances of Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley (lead or supporting? She could go either way).

The Hollywood Reporter:

At the same time, their professional relationship has to be hidden, as regulations dictate that women are only permitted lower level clerical and communications jobs at the site and are required to live together in communal housing. Knightley’s turn here is alive, alert and altogether sympathetic.


Also sure to get strong consideration is Keira Knightley, as good as she has ever been, as a colleague of Turing who becomes so much more. Although she has lead billing with Cumberbatch, producers tell me  they plan to put her in Supporting Actress and that seems appropiate unless the actors branch who votes on these things disagrees, but the thrust of the film is really Cumberbatch.

Elizabeth: How did it begin?
Mr. Darcy: I cannot fix the hour, or the spot, or the look. It was too long ago and I was in the middle before I knew I had begun.
