A Second World War codebreaker drama starring Benedict Cumberbatch has won the top prize at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Director Morten Tyldum’s The Imitation Game claimed the coveted Grolsch People’s Choice Award.
Sherlock star Cumberbatch plays British codebreaker Alan Turing, alongside Oscar nominee Keira Knightley and Matthew Goode.
Three of the past six People’s Choice Award winners have gone on to win the Oscar for best picture, including The King’s Speech, Slumdog Millionaire and last year’s victor, 12 Years A Slave.
