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.
