Mr Holmes (PG)

2015 (UK | USA)  (   Crime, Drama, Mystery ) 

Starring:   Ian McKellen, Laura Linney, Hiroyuki Sanada
Director:   Bill Condon

Ian McKellen is fascinating in his portrayal of the great detective Sherlock Holmes at age 93, desperate to unravel one more mystery despite declining health and dementia. Holmes now lives on a Sussex farm, where he tends bees and relies on a widowed cook (Laura Linney) and her 14-year-old son, Roger (Milo Parker), a sleuth in training. In flashbacks, Holmes is seen dealing with his last case and with a married woman (Hattie Morahan) who might have been his great love.

‘Mr. Holmes’ is more than a gripping little tale, somewhere in its tangle of timelines, false starts, and red herrings is a great truth about the unsolvable mystery of the human soul.
