Watch an Exclusive Clip of Benedict Cumberbatch Talk About Coming Out in The Imitation Game

The Imitation Game is not just an opportunity for people to try to taste Benedict Cumberbatch at premieres — it is also a biopic of Alan Turing, the man who helped Britain break Germany’s Enigma code during World War II before being persecuted for his homosexuality. Cumberbatch plays Turing, and he’s joined by a long list of recognizable British faces, including Matthew Goode, Allen Leech, and Keira Knightley, who plays Turing’s close friend Joan Clarke. In this exclusive clip from the film, Cumberbatch and Leech discuss the possibility of Turing coming out of the closet to Joan, and the harsh consequences he might face for doing so. The Imitation Game is out November 28.
