The 58th London Film Festival opens tonight with the gala screening of the Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game.

Acclaimed on its journey across the festival circuit the film, from Headhunters director Morten Tyldum, is a fine choice to open this year’s festival and today its two stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley were on hand this morning to talk to the assembled press before gala screening tonight.

Presented here is the full press conference, moderated by Time Out’s film editor Dave Calhoun.

Our review of the film is right here, and check out everything you need to know about this year’s London Film Festival here.
