Keira Knightley and Benedict Cumberbatch look oh so gorgeous as they attended a screening of The Imitation Game on the opening night gala of the 58th BFI London Film Festival at Odeon Leicester Square in London, England last night (October 08, 2014).

Rain didn’t seem to damper the mood as the co-stars were all smiles on the red carpet.

Keira was looking stunning as usual in a tiered gold gown which featured sheer long sleeves, while Benedict looked dapper in a classic three piece suit.

The film, a historical biopic about the life of Alan Turing, sees Cumberbatch play the lead role as he helps try to crack the Nazis’ Enigma code during World War II.

Cumberbatch’s performance is already being tipped as an Oscar contender.

“To be asked to play such a phenomenal human being – a true English hero – is a great honour and comes with a great responsibility,” Cumberbatch said.

Benedict recently participated in a Twitter Q&A with fans. Here are a few highlights from that.
