The-Imitation-Game

As you might know from the Golden Globes on Sunday, awards season is in full swing.

And you might also know that The Imitation Game is a big contender for those awards (even though it was somehow shut out at the Globes).

I was able to check out a screening during TIFF – where it went on to win the People’s Choice Award – and absolutely adored this film. You might not be all that familiar with Enigma if you’re living over here in the West (unless you’re a history buff), but the story surrounding it is vital to our history – because it helped end World War II.

Alan Turing was the definition of a war hero, and because he happened to be attracted to men back in a time when that was illegal, his country essentially murdered him. It’s a truly tragic story, but one that definitely needed to be told.

If you’re up for seeing a truly captivating film, you’re in luck, because I have 5 pairs of ROE passes and soundtracks to giveaway for those of you located in Toronto.
