Chess and Cinema and Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game)
Benedict Cumberbatch and The Imitation Game will turn chess geeks into heroes
Isn't it nice when chess makes the headlines? This is the title of a recent Radio Times article (link) trailing the connection of chess to computers via Alan Turing (as played by Benedict Cumberbatch in the new film the Imitation Game). The article is written by new English Chess Federation President Dominic Lawson so is more than usually insightful about the connection of the film themes to real chess history.
The Imitation Game (certificate 12A) is released on 14 November, but leave 17 November free for another type of chess .... its the next CLUB NIGHT for RCC players. See you at the Workers Club.
