MR. HOLMES
2015, Roadside Attractions, 104 min, UK/USA, Dir: Bill Condon

This graceful adaptation of Mitch Cullin’s 2005 novel A Slight Trick of the Mind is set in 1947, when a 93-year-old Sherlock Holmes (Ian McKellen) has retired to a Sussex farm he shares with widowed housekeeper Mrs. Munro (Laura Linney) and her son (Milo Parker). Struggling with both memory loss and the fictionalization of his exploits, Holmes tries to deduce what went wrong in his final case 30 years earlier. “What Ian McKellen does with Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective in MR. HOLMES is nothing short of magnificent.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.

THE SAVAGES
2007, 20th Century Fox, 113 min, USA, Dir: Tamara Jenkins

Wendy Savage (Laura Linney) is a struggling East Village playwright who is involved with a married man. Her brother, Jon (Philip Seymour Hoffman), is a college professor in Buffalo who lives an isolated academic life and can’t commit to the Polish woman with whom he has been intimately involved for years. When a phone call informs them that their father, Lenny (Philip Bosco), has developed dementia and can no longer take care of himself, Wendy and Jon put their already arrested lives on hold to butt heads over all the decisions that must be made about how to care for their father during his final days.
