So, not only Cumberbatch is heavily praised but the movie itself seems to be well received. Very exciting! :twothumbsup:

Toronto: Very Enthusiastic Woman Asks to Taste Benedict Cumberbatch's Yumminess
Then a woman got up to the mic and declared, "Benedict, I actually think you're quite yummy." Everyone laughed. So she repeated herself. "You really are quite yummy."
"When is the question coming?" Toronto Film Festival director Cameron Bailey interjected. The woman said she had two really important questions, both for Cumberbatch, of course. One was what part of the role of WWII hero codebreaker Alan Turing did he identify with most. And the second very important question, keeping with the theme of the film, which "is that it's okay to be a little bit different... Would I be able to feast on your yumminess?"

I was there for this screening lol Benedict looked so shocked and appalled,then he said he's taken. On the other hand the movie is incredible and Cumberbatch and Knightley will get noms for sure

There's been various reactions/reviews from test screenings all over the internet. The general consensus is the movie is bad to mediocre. Which is hardly a surprise given Burton's recent track record.
