Watch: Keira Knightley Impresses Benedict Cumberbatch In Clip From 'The Imitation Game' Plus New Pics

We know it’s Halloween, you’re putting the finishing touches on your costume, and the last thing you want to do is think about the Oscar race. But for the studios, there’s not a moment to waste, and every minute counts if you want awards season gold. Today a new clip from the hotly buzzed “The Imitation Game” has arrived.

Directed by Morten Tyldum, and starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley, the film tells the true story of genius mathematician Alan Turing, who helped break the German Enigma code during World War II. But he didn’t do it entirely alone, with Knightley’s character also part of the team, and in this scene we see her impress the unflappable Turing.

We’ll see if this one has the legs for Oscar glory over the coming weeks and months, but for now check it out the clip and pics below, and watch “The Imitation Game” when it opens on November 21st.
