The Peccadillo gang braved the rain last night and made it to the opening night of the London Film Festival and the premiere of THE IMITATION GAME starring Benedict Cumberbatch!
And we really liked the film, especially it’s anger at the treatment of an unknown national hero simply because of his sexuality. During the evening the actor Charles Dance made a very good point when he said that rather than The Crown granting Alan Turning a “pardon”, our government should have asked Turing’s family for a pardon.
But let’s not forget the 48,999 other men who also faced the charge of “gross indecency”, when do they get their “pardon”?
